  • 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.    
  • Anti-Fraud Provisions of the Investment Advisers Act RIAs and IARs should view themselves as fiduciaries at all times, whether they meet the legal definition or not.  Deviating from the fiduciary standard of full disclosure while courting clients may cause the advisor significant problems.

Officials representing seven of the U.S. Department of Labor’s agencies—including the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA)--will host live Web chats during the week of July 11 to discuss their respective regulatory agendas. These events will be open to the public
