Understanding Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI)

Presented by

Donald McElligott, VP Compliance, Global Relay; Robert Lavigne, Managing Director, Bates Compliance

About this talk

Effective from June 30th 2020, the US SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI) rules mean that broker-dealers will be bound by law to put their customers’ interests first. Billed as the biggest regulatory change in decades, Reg BI is a new stricter standard for broker-dealers, governing how they provide investment advice to retail clients. What Reg BI underscores is the importance for firms to continuously monitor the interactions they have with clients, and to ensure they have the right technology and tools in place to capture and flag potential rule violations. In doing so, compliance teams can focus on proactively reviewing suspect communications, rather than wasting time managing infringements and paying costly enforcement fines. Watch this webinar to learn: • Why Reg BI came into force • How the obligations of regulated firms are affected • What the Regulator expects from firms to ensure compliance • How Reg BI impacts product sales • More about conflicts, compensation, and disclosure
