Social Media and Financial Services
Focus Financial works diligently to operate within the regulations of Financial Services and we do so to help maintain the integrity of our firm and the industry as a whole. As we comply with these rules, we ask you to as well. Unfortunately, posts or comments that don’t comply with the rules we abide by will have to be removed.
The #1 Rule of Financial Services on Social Media:
- Specific financial questions and account information can’t be posted, by a client or an advisor. If you are a client, please contact your Focus Financial Independent Financial Advisor. If not, you can find one of our advisors who will suit your needs here.
It’s also important to note that as convenient as it is to message people within Facebook and Twitter, our Independent Financial Advisors will not be able to return your message within those social media channels. They will respond, but will do so from their Focus Financial email accounts.
We appreciate the time you took to learn how to connect with us online, and we look forward to providing you with interesting industry content.
