The uncertainty and volatility of the economy and investments makes investors scrutinize the advice they receive from their advisors more than ever. A market correction that causes significant losses will likely trigger legal action and potential liability. And, the courts will hold an investment advisor responsible for providing advice that has resulted in any unnecessary losses.

Michael will lay out the standards of care that apply to these professionals and the potential damage exposure in the context of serving individual and trust clients.
