1. I forgot my password. Can you reset it?
Please contact Dominic Cioffi to reset your password.
2. Can I refer one of my contacts to become registered with Rainmaker Securities?
Yes, however we only allow a limited number of opening for registered representatives. They must have a clean regulatory history, established book of business, experience in investment banking or merchant banking, and willingness to put in the requisite time and effort towards the sale of securities on a day-to-day basis.
3. Do I need to run X or Y transaction through the broker-dealer?
If a transaction: (i) involves the sale of equity or debt securities, (ii) you are not the buyer or seller, and (iii) you are paid a fee contingent upon finding a buyer or seller for the transaction, then the transaction must be run through the broker-dealer. If you do not, you are out of compliance with government regulations and subject to substantial fines as well as suspension or termination of your FINRA licenses. To the extent Rainmaker Securities is punished for your violation, we reserve the right to seek indemnification from you personally through arbitration or litigation.
4. Where can I find a list of representatives registered with Rainmaker Securities along with biographies and contact information?
5. Why don't the securities offered by Rainmaker Securities need to be registered with the SEC?
All securities offered by Rainmaker Securities fall under an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933. For primary offerings, we offer securities under the 506(b) or 506(c) offering exemptions of Regulation D. For secondary offerings, the transactions are exempt under a combination of Section 4(a)(1) and 4(a)(2), commonly known as Section 4(a)(1.5).
6. Can I invest in the initial public offering of Company X?
No. Broker-dealers, their agents, and any of the agent's family members are prohibited by law from investing in any initial public offering of securities.
7. Does Rainmaker Securities offer healthcare to its registered representatives?
Due to regulatory constraints and the financial implications of those constraints, Rainmaker Securities cannot provide healthcare to its independent contractors.
