On April 18, the SEC released over 1,000 pages of proposed regulations intended to enhance protections for retail investors, including Proposed Regulation Best Interest. Regulation Best Interest would require a broker-dealer to discharge its duty to act in the best interest of the retail customer through compliance with three specific obligations:  (1) disclosure obligations;  (2) care obligations; and (3) conflict of interest obligations.

Join the Structured Products Association and Mayer Brown on Monday, April 30 for a conference call briefing participants on the SEC’s Proposed Regulation Best Interest.  The discussion will include:

  • The comment period and timing of the rule;
  • The implications of the proposed rule on structured and market-linked investments; and
  • Potential next steps for firms marketing structured investments.
