With a huge increase in the number and sizes of business conducted via social networks and mobile apps; there is expected to be tighter scrutiny in the coming years. In such a scenario, advisors and their firms need to anticipate and prepare for any technology requirements or changes to their practices.

Financial services firms and even individual financial services professionals remain curious about what is considered acceptable practice regarding communications with the public via social media. Though social media has proven to be a tremendous marketing channel to present capabilities and find new clients, FINRA continues to issue guidance on recordkeeping, suitability, supervision, and content requirements for such communications.
This webinar will clarify on the grey areas of the use of social media over the social networks and mobile apps.
