What is the problem?

Firms and individuals who work for FINRA regulated broker dealers have regulatory compliance burdens to monitor and record all customer communications.  Registered Reps using Whats App are getting fined.

From Financial News:

JPMorgan's $200m in fines to the US banking regulator for failing to keep track of workers' use of personal messaging apps are a sign that banks won't get a free pass in keeping tabs on workers during the pandemic.

The development highlights the risk for firms when traders, bankers and salespeople — subject to strict rules around the recording and reporting of conversations and transactions — are able to work from their kitchens and bedrooms, and out of eyesight of bosses. While JPMorgan’s policies prohibit the use of apps like WhatsApp for work-related communications, Securities and Exchange Commission officials said the bank didn’t adequately supervise employees.

It's not just a US problem. A UK regulatory lawyer warned Financial News last year of a boom in “market-abuse cases as a result of home working during the pandemic. There will be more scrutiny on this area than ever.”

Since the start of the pandemic, FN has chronicled the compliance headaches at banks and finance firms trying to keep tabs on remote-working traders.
