Critical Skills for High-Performance Compliance Professionals: Closing the Circle
This is an in-person course being taught as part of the Scottsdale Investment Adviser Compliance Symposium.
Closing the Circle: Matching Advertising, Contracts, Disclosures and Procedures
Ideally, your firm’s advertisements, contracts, disclosures and supervisory procedures should perfectly mesh. In practice, as these documents are often created by different persons with different sets of goals, and may be updated at different times, there may be points on which they contradict each other. What should you do when you find areas of disagreement among these key documents? In this interactive session, panelists and attendees will examine some common (and not-so-common) examples of material discrepancies and review the various steps that may be used to correct them.
After attending this course, attendees should be able to:
- Identify discrepancies when reviewing key documents
- Analyze possible correction strategies to determine which is best for your firm
- Create procedures to prevent discrepancies from occurring in the first place
