Event Synopsis:

Pursuant to the Form ADV reporting and disclosure amendments adopted last 2016, investment advisers are now held to submit new requirements in their upcoming registrations. The new rules, which included three key changes, specifically require investment advisers with additional information on Part 1A of Form ADV regarding their separately managed accounts (SMAs) and advisory business. Additionally, new disclosure obligations on related private fund advisers with a single advisory business (umbrella registrations) are also imposed.
With reporting and disclosure changes dawning for future registrations, it is imperative that investment advisers have a firm transition plan as early as now. Efficiently facilitating these new requirements can be of big help in such implementation.

In this live webcast, a panel of key thought leaders organized by The Knowledge Group will provide an overview of the new Form ADV reporting and disclosure requirements to help you understand its critical elements and the changes it will set forth. Speakers will also offer best practices in developing an efficient transition plan to facilitate implementation.

Key topics include:
- 2016 Form ADV Amendments
- Key Changes:
- Separately Managed Accounts
- Advisory Business
- Umbrella Registration
- Additional Disclosure Amendments
- Transition Guide
- What Lies Ahead
