Program Details

This workshop will address important compliance-related topics for SEC-registered investment advisers. A roster of our speakers, with their bios, is available here.

  • Hear members of SEC Headquarters or SEC Regional Offices discuss current examination priorities for advisers.
  • Learn about key regulatory developments and the latest updates from Washington from IAA attorneys.
  • Participate in a hands-on workshop session analyzing a “bad ad” to identify and resolve common compliance issues in advertisements and marketing materials, including issues related to performance claims, social media, and more.
  • Work through a checklist of the new Form ADV Part 1A amendments to identify where you need to focus to prepare for your next filing.
  • Explore techniques and processes to help oversee third-party service providers – including due diligence, documentation and handling cybersecurity issues.

In addition to SEC staff, speakers will include attorneys from nationally recognized law firms, CCOs, compliance consultants, and IAA legal staff. The workshop will include a networking luncheon where attendees can exchange ideas about shared compliance concerns.
