2019 Webinar - New Form CRS

When:  Jul 19, 2019 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (ET)

Panel Description

This webinar is intended to inform members about the new relationship summary – Form CRS – that, beginning in July 2020, advisers and broker-dealers will need to provide to individuals investing for personal, family, or household purposes (i.e., retail investors).

Form CRS will, among other things, briefly address the types of services being offered and provide information regarding fees, costs, conflicts of interest, and the applicable standard of conduct. Delivery of Form CRS will be required at the beginning of the client relationship and at certain times for existing clients, and be subject to SEC filing and related recordkeeping requirements. This webinar will go through the specific requirements of Form CRS, including a discussion of:

  • Definition of “retail investor”
  • Presentation and format
  • Specific disclosure items
  • Filing, delivery, and updating obligations
