  • The Few and the Proud: Chief Compliance Officers CCOs make significant contributions to success of an RIA, designing and implementing compliance programs that prevent, detect and correct securities law violations.  When major compliance problems occur at firms, CCOs will likely receive regulatory consequences.    
  • Suitability and Fiduciary Duty Recommending suitable investments is more than just a regulatory obligation.  Many investors bring cases claiming lack of suitability, so RIAs must continuously put the onus on clients to notify the advisor of changes in their financial situation.  
AIG announced Monday, Augusut 23, that it has repaid almost $4 billion to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. International Lease Finance Corporation, a subsidiary of AIG, sold $4.4 billion in secured and unsecured notes to make the $3.9 billion payment.

The payment is the single largest the company has made to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and brings the total owed including principal and interest to approximately $21 billion.

Robert Benmosche, president and CEO of AIG, expressed confidence in the company's success.

"AIG is getting stronger every day. We still have more work to do, but we will finish the job and make sure we repay the American taxpayers," Benmosche said in a statement.

"Our insurance businesses are profitable; client retention rates have stabilized; and surrender rates have improved to normal levels. We are starting to see light at the end of the tunnel," he added.
