Event Synopsis:

It’s no secret that over the last few years, the financial industry has been struggling under the weight of regulatory compliance issues. Recently, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission has moved into this arena, bringing enforcement actions against several financial institutions including Barclays, Deutche Bank, and JP Morgan. Financial institutions, whether large or small, engaged in trading, generating, or transmitting electrical power are now under FERC’s stringent scrutiny. Once proved that they are in violation of FERC rules, financial institutions face large fines and hefty penalties. Finance executives, internal audit, legal, risk management and especially compliance officers will need to work closely with the organization’s governing board and corporate counsel to understand the organization’s policies and ensure that they are in compliance with FERC rules.

The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of distinguished experts who will share their opinions in a two-hour teleconference and webinar. They will discuss the substantive issues relating to FERC’s enforcement actions in the financial industry along with practical guidance to develop and implement an effective compliance program. A live interaction with the audience in a question and answer format is also included in this event.
