How do RIAs and their teams use social media without raising the risk of compliance problems?

Last month, the SEC released new guidance for RIAs on the use of client testimonials in social media, clarifying what you can and cannot say and do. For instance, publishing a partial client list is okay, the SEC says, and SEC no longer maintains that a social profile with non-investment related commentary regarding an IAR, such as regarding an IAR’s religious affiliation or community service, may violate the testimonial rule.   

At this webinar, Chris Winn will cover the current trends in social media regulation, including the SEC’s recent guidance to provide practical advice to navigate the social world in a compliant manner, including:
  • Current social media regulatory framework
  • New SEC guidance
  • When is an action a "testimonial"?
  • Common social media mistakes made by IARs
