Fundamentals of Investment Adviser Regulation 2013

Wednesday, July 17, 2013
01:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time

Investment Management partner Steve Stone will be presenting on "Regulation of Advisers (Part II): Brokerage and Trading Practices" at PLI's Fundamentals of Investment Adviser Regulation 2013.

In the aftermath of the financial crisis and the resulting regulatory reform, the SEC has advanced significant rulemaking to impose a greater degree of controls on investment advisers' operations. In fact, the SEC has put the regulation of investment advisers under the microscope, establishing new rules related to adviser custody, political contributions and adviser disclosure and has retooled its adviser exam program.

At this program, attendees will get a solid foundation in the regulatory regime applying to investment advisers. Attendees will learn how the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and state securities laws interact in governing the advisory industry.

A distinguished faculty will offer insights into recent developments, including the SEC's adviser exam program and recent enforcement cases.
