Regulators Toughen Broker Standards


WASHINGTON _ Federal securities regulators adopted tougher new standards Tuesday for the amount of cash or convertible securities brokers must maintain to protect investors. The Securities and Exchange Commission gave final approval to changes in the rule which requires broker-dealers to maintain minimum amounts of cash or assets that can easily be converted into cash in case of an emergency. The action will raise the minimum net capital required of mostly smaller firms to bring them in line with the already stiffer requirements of bigger firms. Firms now required to maintain between $25,000 and $100,000 in net capital will now have to boost those holdings to at least $250,000. Similarly, investment bankers that buy new stock offerings from the issuer and market makers _ the specialists that buy and sell over-the-counter stocks _ will be required to maintain a minimum of $100,000 in capital, up from $25,000.
