Financial and Operations Principal (FinOp) Services

CRC is a leader in outsourced FinOp services and our experienced practitioners fulfill their responsibilities with the utmost care. CRC is committed to product quality and, unlike many competitors, never overextend our FinOps with more client assignments than they can reasonably, and successfully service.

FinOp Support

Broker-dealer financial and operational requirements are dynamic and complex. A broker-dealer that relies on an outsourced FinOp model must ensure that its FinOp is appropriately trained and has the requisite experience with the specific business lines that it operates.

An outsourced FinOp must also demonstrate his or her capacity to dedicate the appropriate amount of time and effort to each firm he or she supports. A FinOp that is registered with 12 or more broker-dealers may be a red flag that your firm should carefully consider before employing the services of such individual.
