Social media is no longer an indulgence. Millions of people use social media platforms to obtain information about companies and trends, including investments. By using social networking services, investment advisers to private funds can manage their brand, publicly demonstrate knowledge of market sectors, and recruit top new talent. The perks of its use are clear. The potential perils are not always as easy to identify.
Students shall learn the following within this Course:
- Comprehensive Discussion and Analysis of the New “Risk-Focused” Examination Approach and Process
- How advertising rules under the Investment Advisers Act limit uses of particular social networking forums, such as LinkedIn and Twitter;
- The Social Media Alert issued by the SEC’s National Exam Program;
- Potential risks with respect to social networking communications by placement agents or “Finders”;
- The impact on an adviser’s ability to claim CFTC registration exemptions in order to avoid registration; and
- The potential privacy issues related to social media, including the risks of discoverability in litigation, increased vulnerability to malware and other intrusions, and the potential inadvertent disclosure of sensitive information.
