Political Contributions and Prohibitions on the Municipal Securities Business
Thursday, March 28, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PDT)
Palo Alto, CA
This municipal securities compliance training will clearly explain the MSRB (Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board) Rule-37, discuss the key elements of political contribution restrictions and prohibitions on the municipal securities business, disclosure requirements, violations and how to prevent them.
Why Should You Attend:
The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) Rule G-37 was enacted to ensure the standards and integrity of the municipal securities industry are maintained and to detect and prevent fraudulent activities and violations. The rule's complexities have caused several firms to violate its requirements, resulting in bans in negotiated and/or financial advisory business as well as payments of very large fines.
This training module draws on the expertise of veteran municipal securities compliance officers with over 40 years combined regulatory experience. In addition to discussing in detail, the elements of political contribution restrictions and prohibitions on the municipal securities business, this course will use real-world case studies to enhance your understanding of the material that can be immediately applied in the workplace. Attendees will learn the disclosure requirements for political contributions in the municipal securities business. The course will also discuss how a ban on the municipal securities business works if a political contribution violation occurs.
This training goes beyond reading the written rules and regulations from the manual. At the end of the session, a learning assessment will be conducted and our instructor will address attendees’ questions related to MSRB rule-37.
