How Good Is Your Compliance Program?

Will it withstand SEC scrutiny during a regulatory exam? Do you assess your regulatory risk the same way that the SEC does? Should you be worried?

Worst-case scenario: You’ve done something so egregious that the SEC lawyers refer the case to Enforcement, which could lead to public censure, fines, expensive undertakings, and industry bans.

Least-bad scenario: A problem shows up on a deficiency letter that a potential client will see.

In between: You and your firm become entangled in an ongoing regulatory dialog with the SEC that costs time and money. And, once the SEC determines that you or your firm is a compliance risk, you will likely see the examiners on an annual (if not continuing) basis.
