Course Description:

While the SEC considers revising the advertising rules, the current rules must still be understood and carefully followed. Investment advisers must still employ decades-old rules while finding fresh and effective ways of offering their services to a younger cohort of prospective clients. This session will review the fundamental concepts of IA advertising and marketing compliance and provide practical advice to help you advise your marketing department on compliant ways to employ both traditional channels and social media. This interactive session will also allow you to analyze sample advertisements to determine whether they are acceptable for IAs.

Learning Ojectives

After attending this session, attendees should be able to:

  • Analyze the most recent developments in IA advertising rules
  • Avoid common advertising pitfalls
  • Develop agile processes for ensuring compliant advertising and recordkeeping
  • Evaluate the risks associated with the newest marketing channels

This virtual course is being taught as part of the Fall 2020 Compliance Conference. To learn more, visit our main conference webpage.
