Changes in the Enforcement Division of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has become the point of discussion following the appointment of Gary Gensler as chairman. Heightened regulation and reversions are anticipated, particularly on the scope of fees and expenses, conflicts of interest disclosure, misuse of material non-public information, and other risk management policies.

These current and emerging developments underscore the new administration’s rigorous scrutiny on financial reporting and compliance processing. Thus, financial institutions, brokerage firms, and all affected companies should always be well informed to ensure that they are compliant with the SEC’s policies.

Listen as a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners organized by The Knowledge Group provide a comprehensive discussion on the recent SEC enforcement actions and investigations. Speakers will also offer helpful tips to manage potential risks as well as best compliance practices.

Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:

  • SEC Enforcement Action and Investigations: Recent Developments
  • Enforcement Priorities
  • Best Practices to Manage Risks
  • Compliance Tips
