With the June 30, 2020 implementation deadline for Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI) fast approaching, join us for our second Reg BI workshop. Building off the discussions and feedback from our first Reg BI workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to network and hear how firms have been moving forward in their preparation as well as share the questions they have encountered and discuss possible solutions. The workshop will also explore Form CRS, particularly how firms are approaching it and the formats being used.
