March 2-3, 2017
Washington, DC

The biggest challenges facing investment advisory compliance officers will take center stage at the IAA’s 2017 Investment Adviser Compliance Conference, March 2-3, in Washington, D.C. Our comprehensive, two-day program is widely considered the premier industry compliance event, featuring an impressive roster of regulators, industry compliance professionals, and legal experts presenting the most up-to-date information on the changing regulatory landscape – with an emphasis on new and upcoming regulatory requirements, as well as practical compliance information.

Not only will participants return to their firms with practical insights and knowledge of best practices to help them maintain a successful compliance program – they will have the opportunity to meet and interact with their professional peers to discuss issues of common concern.
