Heightened Enforcement on Dually Registered Broker-Dealers and Advisers: Best Compliance Practices You Should Know
The brokerage landscape has been continuously evolving these past years and is being subjected to intensified regulatory scrutiny. With the anticipated finalization of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) improved standard of care known as the Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI), it is expected that the regulatory framework of dual-registered broker-dealers and investment advisers would change drastically. The Reg BI proposal aims to mitigate financial conflicts by obliging brokers to put their client’s financial interests ahead of their own.
With these anticipated changes, being in the know of the latest updates is not the only concern of broker-dealers and investment advisers. It is also important to improve compliance capabilities and performance to avoid potential risk and pitfalls.
In this LIVE Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will provide and present an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent enforcement trends involving dually registered broker-dealers and advisers. Speakers will also tackle all important compliance practices surrounding this significant topic.
Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
- Dually Registered Broker-Dealers and Advisers: Trends and Developments
- Best Compliance Practices and Obligations
- Risks and Pitfalls
- Opportunities and Challenges
- Future Implications and Outlook
