The Knowledge Group Has Scheduled a Live Webcast on The SEC 2016 Examination Priorities: Exploring Recent Trends and Developments

The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: The SEC 2016 Examination Priorities: Exploring Recent Trends and Developments Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on June 22, 2016 @ 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM (ET).

New York, NY, May 13, 2016 --( On January 11, 2016, the SEC's Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations (OCIE) announced its examination priorities for this year. The 2016 examination priorities are organized around the three thematic areas: (1) examining matters of importance to retail investors, including investors saving for retirement; (2) assessing issues related to market-wide risks; and (3) using data analytics to identify and examine registrants that may be engaged in illegal activity. The OCIE identified new areas of focus related to these priorities, which include liquidity controls, product promotions, exchange-traded funds and variable annuities. There will also be a continuing focus directed on cybersecurity, microcap fraud, fee selection and reverse churning.

These examination priorities impact most security industry participants including registered investment advisers, broker dealers, registered investment companies, and transfer agents. Although the OCIE indicated that the list is not exhaustive, the affected professionals are recommended to review and update their compliance practices based on the specified areas mentioned in preparation for a SEC examination.

In this two-hour live webcast, a panel of distinguished professionals and thought leaders will help security industry professionals and companies understand the 2016 SEC Examination Priorities. Speakers will also offer best practices to ensure compliance and preparedness in the event of an examination.

In a two-hour live webcast, the speakers will discuss:
- Purpose and Thematic Focus of 2016 Examination
- Protecting Retail Investors and Investors Saving for Retirement
- Assessing Market-Wide Risks
