The NRS Spring Conference - with early registration pricing, a content-rich program, and peer networking in Fort Lauderdale (America’s Riviera) - is the place for up-to-the-minute news on critical rules, cases and regulatory interpretations.
The post-Dodd-Frank regulatory landscape is gradually coming into focus. We now know that:
- The SEC is bringing enforcement actions for rules violations even if the violation does not involve client fraud
- The SEC’s Enforcement Division (through its new Asset Management Unit), the OCIE, and the Division of Investment Management are working together to identify issues and potential targets for examinations and/or enforcement actions
- The qualifications and authority of compliance officers continue to be issues of great interest to the SEC
- Newly registered private fund advisers are being targeted for a focused program of “presence examinations” in the months ahead. Some experts suggest that as many as 25% of all such advisers may be examined in the next 18-24 months
- The SEC is asking top management to assess its risks beyond regulatory compliance, examining the entire range of risks associated with the firm, its affiliates, and its associated persons
And what are the regulators looking for? The expectation is a dynamic, robust program that is not an uncoordinated, begrudging reaction to various rules, but is an integral part of the firm’s operations, management and overall culture.
Join us at the NRS Spring Conference where we will provide you with the critical knowledge and skills needed to maximize your resources to develop and maintain a dynamic and flourishing compliance program. Whether you are new to compliance or a seasoned professional, this is the conference for you!
