Our panel will examine legislative issues that are affecting our industry and review current regulatory priorities from our SEC and FINRA colleagues.

GENERAL SESSION HIGHLIGHT:

A Look Ahead: Quantifying Industry Changes

The proliferation of product types and the expansion of distribution channels is fundamental to changes taking place within Portfolio Diversifying Investments (PDIs). This presentation will quantify those changes by examining the adoption of different product types and the structural and fee changes that are expanding our distribution channels.

GENERAL SESSION HIGHLIGHT:

Access Points: Understanding the Evolution of Broker-Dealer Product Platforms

Panelists will explore how the continued expansion of product types is impacting the way broker-dealers build product platforms for advisors. By reconciling the need for advisory and commissionable solutions against product structures, we will hear how broker-dealers are purposefully reshaping the way we deliver client solutions.
