NASHVILLE — Fifty registered investment advisers from across the state gained valuable insight about numerous compliance issues facing the securities industry at the 2014 Annual Investment Adviser Compliance Seminar at the Department of Commerce and Insurance’s offices in Nashville.
The event, which was held in early November, featured guest speaker Larry Burton, the former chief of Broker-Dealer and Investment Adviser Registration in the department’s Securities division, along with Assistant Commissioner Daphne Smith and other members of the Securities Division team.
