On June 5, 2019, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) published a series of rulemakings and interpretations. The package included Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI), the new standard of conduct for broker-dealers serving retail customers, and the Form CRS Relationship Summary (Form CRS), a new form that brokers and advisers must provide to investors.
This program will provide an overview of each rule, implementation considerations, and best practices on Reg BI and Form CRS, which required compliance by June 30, 2020. The program will also cover related efforts by states on regulating recommendations to customers.
We hope the program will be useful for any practitioner responsible for providing legal or compliance advice to broker-dealers or investment advisers. An inventory of reference materials will also be made available to supplement the discussion on the new standards. Each panel will cover key aspects of the designated topic examining with details provided below:
(Note: The package also included two interpretations under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, which will not be covered by this program.)
- Highlights of the relevant rule
- Special considerations and challenges
