In this timely and informative webinar hosted by FTI Consulting, legal and compliance experts will provide critical information about the Qualified Professional Asset Manager ("QPAM") exemption and related compliance audit requirement that applies to numerous financial institutions that manage or want to manage ERISA pension money. Speakers will likewise address the merits of managing money for captive ERISA benefit plans and what it means to be an In House Asset Manager ("INHAM").
Getting the right team to conduct the required audit is one important way to mitigate litigation and enforcement risk and to attract and retain institutional dollars.
