To engage in securities transactions with United States (US) clients, non-US firms must comply with SEC Rule 15a-6 requirements. This rule provides limited exemptions to the US registration requirement for firms.
The US require firms to register as a broker-dealer in the US. To conduct business with US clients under the exemptions of Rule 15a-6, firms must complete a Background Questionnaire and Consent to Service of Process form.
