REGULATION BEST INTEREST (REG BI)
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) approved Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI) and Customer Relationship Summary (Form CRS), a significant new rule that strengthens investor protections for retail customers receiving recommendations from brokers.

CHARACTERISTICS AND RISKS OF STANDARDIZED OPTIONS
Prior to buying or selling an option, investors must read a copy of the Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options, also known as the options disclosure document (ODD). It explains the characteristics and risks of exchange traded options.
Effective March 13, 2022, a new version of the ODD is available for distribution (March 2022 ODD). The March 2022 ODD supersedes and replaces the prior ODD and supplements, and consequently, prior versions of the ODD, including the October 2021 ODD and all prior versions, should no longer be distributed.

Rule 606: Disclosure of order routing information replaces 11Ac1-6
Extended Hours Trading
Customers should consider the following points before engaging in extended hours trading. “Extended hours trading” means trading outside of “regular trading hours.” “Regular trading hours” generally means the time between 9:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.
- Risk of Lower Liquidity. Liquidity refers to the ability of market participants to buy and sell securities. Generally, the more orders that are available in a market, the greater the liquidity. Liquidity is important because with greater liquidity it is easier for investors to buy or sell securities, and as a result, investors are more likely to pay or receive a competitive price for securities purchased or sold. There may be lower liquidity in extended hours trading as compared to regular trading hours. As a result, your order may only be partially executed, or not at all.
- Risk of Higher Volatility. Volatility refers to the changes in price that securities undergo when trading. Generally, the higher the volatility of a security, the greater its price swings. There may be greater volatility in extended hours trading than in regular trading hours. As a result, your order may only be partially executed, or not at all, or you may receive an inferior price when engaging in extended hours trading than you would during regular trading hours.
- Risk of Changing Prices. The prices of securities traded in extended hours trading may not reflect the prices either at the end of regular trading hours, or upon the opening the next morning. As a result, you may receive an inferior price when engaging in extended hours trading than you would during regular trading hours.
- Risk of Unlinked Markets. Depending on the extended hours trading system or the time of day, the prices displayed on a particular extended hours trading system may not reflect the prices in other concurrently operating extended hours trading systems dealing in the same securities. Accordingly, you may receive an inferior price in one extended hours trading system than you would in another extended hours trading system.
- Risk of News Announcements. Normally, issuers make news announcements that may affect the price of their securities after regular trading hours. Similarly, important financial information is frequently announced outside of regular trading hours. In extended hours trading, these announcements may occur during trading, and if combined with lower liquidity and higher volatility, may cause an exaggerated and unsustainable effect on the price of a security.
- Risk of Wider Spreads. The spread refers to the difference in price between what you can buy a security for and what you can sell it for. Lower liquidity and higher volatility in extended hours trading may result in wider than normal spreads for a particular security.
- Risk of Lack of Calculation or Dissemination of Underlying Index Value or Intraday Indicative Value (“IIV”). For certain Derivative Securities Products, an updated underlying index value or IIV may not be calculated or publicly disseminated in extended trading hours. Since the underlying index value and IIV are not calculated or widely disseminated during the pre-market and post-market sessions an investor who is unable to calculate implied values for certain Derivative Securities Products in those sessions may be at a disadvantage to market professionals.
FINRA Rule 5320 Disclosure
FINRA Rule 5320 generally prohibits a broker-dealer that accepts and holds an order in an equity security from its customer or a customer of another broker-dealer without immediately executing the order from trading that security on the same side of the market for its own account at a price that would satisfy the customer order, unless it immediately thereafter executes the customer order up to the size and at the same or better price at which it traded for its own account. When you place an order with us and leave the price and time of execution to our discretion (a “not held” order), we may trade in the security for our own account prior to completion of your order and at the same or a better price than you receive.
With respect to the orders of an “institutional account”, as defined in NASD Rule 3110, or for orders of 10,000 shares or more with a value of at least $100,000, Rule 5320 permits a broker-dealer to trade an equity security on the same side of the market for its own account at a price that would satisfy such customer order provided that certain notice is provided to the customer and the customer is provided an opportunity to “opt-in” to the Rule 5320 protections with respect to all or any particular order.
Institutional accounts and persons placing orders for 10,000 shares or more not otherwise subject to the protections afforded by Rule 5320 may “opt-in” to the Rule 5320 protections on an order by order basis with the Hilltop Securities representative taking your order or for all your orders by informing Hilltop Securities in writing by sending said notice to Hilltop Securities Inc., Attn: Compliance Department, 1201 Elm Street, Suite 3500, Dallas, Texas 75270.
