FINRA Rule 5320 Disclosure

Rule 5320 generally prohibits a member firm that accepts and holds a customer order from trading for its own account at terms that would satisfy the customer order, unless the member immediately thereafter executes the customer order at the same or better price than it traded for its own account.

There are certain exceptions to the Rule. Not-held orders are outside the scope of the Rule. Large Orders and Institutional Account Exceptions Large orders (orders of 10,000 or more shares with a total value of $100,000 or more) and/or orders by institutional accounts are excepted from the requirements of Rule 5320, provided that notice is provided to the customer and the customer is provided a meaningful opportunity to opt in to the Rule 5320 protections with respect to all or any portion of its order. Institutional accounts and persons placing orders for 10,000 shares or more not otherwise subject to the protections afforded by Rule 5320 may “opt in” to the Rule 5320 protections by providing written notice (i) with respect to any particular order, at the time of placing an order to the Janney representative taking your order, and (ii) with respect to all orders for your account, to Janney Montgomery Scott, Attn. Capital Markets Compliance, 1717 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103.

Janney will generally work such orders in accordance with customer instructions. While working such orders, Janney may trade for its own account at prices that would satisfy the customer order. “No-Knowledge” Exception Where a firm implements and utilizes an effective system of internal controls, Rule 5320 permits the respective separate units to trade independent of one another for purposes of the Rule. Janney maintains Rule 5320 internal controls between its trading units. The controls are designed to prevent one trading unit from having knowledge of customer orders held by a different trading unit. With these controls in place, one trading unit may hold a customer order while another trading unit, including the market making trading unit, executes an order for a Firm account that would satisfy the customer order.

Weighted Average Pricing

Janney has implemented Weighted Average Pricing to simplify the appearance of securities transactions on client confirmations, statements, Online Access and tax reporting to clients. Weighted Average Pricing is the process of averaging the price of a single transaction using a volume-weighted calculation. For example, when several trade executions are used to complete a single client trade order for eligible securities, a volume-weighted average price is calculated for those trade executions. Weighted Average Pricing is FINRA-approved, and is currently being used by other financial services firms. If you have any questions regarding Weighted Average Pricing, or if you do not wish to have Weighted Average Pricing applied to your account, please contact your Financial Advisor.
