HARRISBURG, Pa., June 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Secretary of Banking and Securities Robin L. Wiessmann today announced a statewide conference of investment professionals and regulators that will take place October 26, 2017, at the Radisson Hotel Harrisburg in Camp Hill.
Compliance 2017 is designed to keep investment professionals and their firms up-to-date on changes to federal and state securities laws and regulations. The conference will focus on a wide range of industry-related topics, such as the examination process, cybersecurity, federal regulatory changes, fiduciary duties, and top concerns of regulators, the securities industry, and the investing public.
"This conference will provide a distinctive opportunity for members of Pennsylvania's securities industry to meet in one place to discuss issues of importance to investing, regulatory matters, and investors," said Secretary Wiessmann. "Our goals are to help ensure the professionals and firms we supervise understand the rules under which they are expected to operate, help them navigate Pennsylvania and federal regulatory structures, and learn how to protect their clients from fraud and financial abuse."
