Major changes in the broker-dealer industry and regulatory framework are anticipated as the SEC continues to advance its Regulation Best Interest, while various states advance their own fiduciary regulations.

This event will provide attendees with a solid foundation in the regulatory regime applying to broker-dealers, including what to expect next regarding broker-dealer regulation. Attendees will learn how the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, FINRA rules and state securities laws interact in governing the brokerage industry.
Attendees will also learn about recent exam and regulatory enforcement activity by the SEC, FINRA and the states and about how broker-dealers are responding to these developments and the challenges ahead for the industry.
