This training program will analyze best practices for the financial services industry to take in regards to the regulatory or 'The Custody Rule'. The program will explain the rule and the potential effect it may have on your firm and clients. SEC-registered investment advisers who have custody of their clients' funds or are deemed to have custody of their clients' assets under the rule must safeguard those assets as required by the SEC's custody rule. 'The custody rule is designed to provide additional safeguards for investors against the possibility of theft or misappropriation by investment advisers who are registered with the SEC.'

Objectives of the Presentation:

- Rule 206(4)-2
- Custody Defined
- Frequently Asked Questions
- We have Custody, Now What?
- Custody Fees
- Client Communication
- Internal Forensic Testing
- External Forensic Testing

Why Should you Attend?

There have been significant deficiencies over the years since the Custody Rule was amended, including a 2017 SEC No Action letter and revision to the FAQs on Custody. Advisers should understand the rule and how to effectively manage and oversee the policies and procedures surrounding it in order to properly secure their clients' assets and to avoid significant regulatory enforcement and penalties. A firm can have custody and not be aware that they do, if they have not properly tested their procedures to the detail of the full custody rule.
