DFPG Investments announces that Brad Anderson, Senior Compliance Officer at DFPG, was one of five recipients in the country to be awarded a scholarship into FINRA’s Certified Regulatory and Compliance Professional (CRCP) Program at Georgetown University.

According to FINRA, the CRCP program provides “compliance, legal, and regulatory professionals with an in-depth understanding of the foundation, theory and practical application of securities laws and regulation.” The program is delivered through Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business.

“There is no question that acceptance into the CRCP program is a highly-respected achievement in our industry,” says DFPG’s CEO Mike Bendix. “Brad has always held himself out as a dedicated compliance professional. On behalf of the entire DFPG Investments family, I congratulate Brad, and all the other scholarship recipients, for this unique opportunity!”

Ryan Smith, President at DFPG, was awarded a scholarship into the CRCP program in 2014 when the program was delivered through the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.

“I am grateful to be one of the few who were awarded a scholarship by FINRA into their CRCP program,” says Anderson. “I appreciate the important role FINRA and compliance plays in our industry, and I look forward to this educational opportunity.”

Anderson and his colleague, Will Snider, recently published an article entitled “Hidden Risks of Data Aggregation” for the National Society of Compliance Professionals.

Prior to joining DFPG in 2017, Anderson worked at Fidelity Investments in various compliance-related roles. From 2004 to 2008, Brad served in the United State Marine Corps as a Filed Artillery Cannoneer. Anderson holds the following industry registrations: Series 7, Series 9, Series 10, Series 24, Series 52, Series 53, Series 53, Series 66, and Series 79. He has a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Westminster College and a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Global Business Management from the University of Phoenix.
