Topics Covered

The Dodd Frank Act gave the SEC and CFTC authority to adopt Red Flags Rules for firms they regulate. Investment advisers, including newly registered advisers to private funds, need to evaluate the applicability of red flags rules for their firm based on the SEC’s statements in the adopting release, rather than relying on any prior assessments of previous FTC red flags rules. (The Red Flags Rule S-ID is effective May 20 and the enforcement date is November 20.)

This webinar will focus on key compliance issues for advisers, including:

  • Understanding the new SEC/CFTC Red Flags Rules and how they apply to advisory firms
  • Assessing if advisers have the ability to direct transfers or payments from client accounts belonging to individuals to third parties upon an individual’s instructions
  • Developing a Red Flags Identity Theft Prevention Program (ITPP) including: preparing written policies and procedures, policy approvals, risk assessment, detecting and resolving red flags, training, and updating
  • Q&A with SEC staff presenters
