    • In this timely and informative webinar hosted by FTI Consulting, legal and compliance experts will provide critical information about (i) the QPAM exemption that often is a commercial necessity for financial service organizations that manage ERISA money or want to manage even a small slice of the $17 trillion U.S. retirement market; and (ii) the new audit rules that apply to a financial firm that is managing retirement fund assets for its own employee benefit plans. Now is not the time to take a chance of being non-compliant.

      • Who must comply and in what timeframe
      • Who can carry out a QPAM /INHAM audit
      • What a QPAM audit entails in terms of information-gathering and scheduling
      • Case study discussion
      • How the results of a QPAM audit can be used to improve operations and client relationships
