    3. the Respondent’s policies and procedures contained outdated and potentially misleading information with respect to several exempt market products, where various mortgage investment corporation exempt market products were classified under the Respondent’s policies and procedures manual as “income” products, despite the fact that the Respondent considered all exempt market products to only be suitable for clients with a high risk tolerance and an aggressive growth objective.
  1. The Respondent also failed to perform supervisory inquiries with respect to exempt market products, contrary to MFDA Rule 2.2.1(c), and MFDA Policy No. 2. These failures included:
