Event Synopsis:

One current hot button issue is the latest U.S. financial regulators' ability under the Dodd-Frank Act to designate large, nonbank financial companies – such as AIG - as "Systemically Important Financial Institutions" (SIFIs) and to subject them to significant additional regulation. In addition, at the same time as financial regulators have been assessing nonbank financial companies, the SEC and the CFTC have intensified their scrutiny of asset managers.

The Knowledge Group gathered a panel of key thought leaders and practitioners who will help you understand some of the most critical issues with respect to compliance issues for nonbanks in a two-hour live webcast.

The panel will discuss the following subjects:

• Critical Enforcement and Compliance Issues for Nonbanks and Asset Managers: An Overview
• Guidance and best practices
• Latest regulatory updates
