On April 18, the SEC voted to propose an interpretation of the standard of conduct for investment advisers intending to “reaffirm – and in some cases clarify – certain aspects of the fiduciary duty that an investment adviser owes to its clients under section 206” of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (the “Advisers Act”).

Please join us for a lunch briefing as we discuss the proposed interpretation and what it may mean for investment advisers in terms of expanding the parameters of the fiduciary duty standard and requiring advisers to take on additional regulatory obligations.

For those joining remotely, a dial in number will be provided prior to the briefing.
