The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) is a private non profit organization that oversees and regulates every firm and person involved in the securities trading industry in America . Every brokerage firm in America is a member of the FINRA, and they set the rules and regulations that every brokerage firm, every branch office, and every licensed securities trader is required to abide by in order to lawfully engage in securities trading activities. The FINRA puts its stamp on the American stock markets in a wide variety of ways. One of the major ways is through dispute mediation. As the number of disputes between clients and brokers has mushroomed in recent years, the FINRA has stepped in to arbitrate mediate between the parties in more than 90% of the cases, using more than 7000 highly trained professionals to resolve these disputes.
