File Number: SR-FINRA-2015-054.  [By electronic submission]

Dear Mr. Errett,

My firm,. XT Capital Partners, is a FINRA member specializing in Third Party Marketing focused on raising assets for Alternative Investment Firms primarily from Institutional Investors with whom we have interacted for over 40 years. I am a member of the Third Party Marketer’s Association (3PM) and serve on the Board. I have had an opportunity to review 3PM’s comprehensive comments regarding the rule set proposed by SR-FINRA-2015-054 for Capital Acquisition Broker (CAB).  I urge the SEC and FINRA to carefully consider 3PM's thoughtful and informed commentary, which has earned my strong support.

 

Regards,

Frank
