  • The Custody Rule and its Ramifications When an RIA takes custody of a client’s funds or securities, risk to that individual increases dramatically. Rule 206(4)-2 under the Investment Advisers Act (better known as the Custody Rule), was passed to protect clients from unscrupulous investors.
  • Meeting and Exceeding Clients and Regulators’ Expectations Although it can be difficult, there are ways for RIAs to meet or exceed client expectations, increase customer satisfaction, and help firms retain current clients and attract new ones.

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
