  • Regulatory Oversight of Investment Advisors Although the regulatory environment is in a state of flux, it is imperative that RIAs adhere to their compliance obligations. To ensure compliance, RIAs and IARs must fully understand what those obligations are.
  • U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Information This information sheet contains general information about certain provisions of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and selected rules under the Adviser’s Act.  It also provides information about the resources available from the SEC to help advisors understand and comply with these laws and rules.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission introduced one interim final rule and two proposed rules on Oct. 1, 2010, the first rules coming out of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, reports Michael J. McFarlin of AdvisorOne.com’s sister publication, FuturesMag.com.

The new rules are designed to bring regulation to swaps and other derivatives, McFarlin writes.

In a separate article appearing in the October issue of Futures magazine, McFarlin wrote about an August 30 CFTC ruling on foreign exchange.
