Spurred by the global financial crisis, insurance companies have instituted a series of transformative financial reforms to help meet the ongoing legal challenges of regulatory changes and initiatives. Insurers need to have a complete understanding of the evolving law governing securities products and asset management services and be aware of their potential impact on their businesses and clients.
In a two-hour Live webinar, a panel of distinguished thought leaders will offer an in-depth discussion of this topic. In addition to extensive examination of the recent provisions set forth by the federal government, the panel will also provide a discussion on best practices in developing company policies to avoid regulatory violations.
