The Regulatory Compliance Association’s
Annual Asset Management Thought Leadership Symposium
Marriott Marquis, Times Square, New York
While no one can predict the ultimate outcome of regulatory reform and shifting industry trends - preparation is paramount to hurdling the challenges and seizing the emerging opportunities.
First and foremost, the SEC’s new Asset Management Specialization Unit, within the Enforcement Division will target hedge funds, private equity, investment advisers, and investment companies - placing Asset Management directly in the cross hairs.
Moreover, Institutional Investor requirements continue to escalate. Large Asset Owners favour firms who have superior processes and practices relative to regulatory compliance, risk management, operations, reporting and governance. To examine and evaluate the challenges and opportunities, the Regulatory Compliance Association with its Event Partners presents the Asset Management Thought Leadership Symposium.
Carlo di Florio, who recently replaced Lori Richards as the head of the SEC’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations, will be providing exclusive insights regarding how SEC requirements will escalate and the examination environment will intensify in 2010 and 2011.
