This year, the Investment Company Institute and the Federal Bar Association sponsored the Mutual Funds and Investment Conference at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa in Palm Desert, California. The conference took place from March 27 to 30, 2011.
As the financial services sector undergoes radical reform, it is critical for those in the mutual fund industry to keep abreast of the latest legislative, regulatory, and business developments affecting funds and their shareholders. Conference participants heard from industry leaders as they discuss the impact of the Dodd-Frank Act on the fund industry, learned about recent and upcoming regulatory developments at the SEC, gained insights into the SEC’s enforcement and compliance programs, learned about new developments in business ethics and how to approach ethical dilemmas, networked with peers and exchanged ideas on current industry issues and developments.
