The SEC recently announced Regulation Best Interest (Reg BI), clarifying required standards of conduct for broker-dealers when advising retail customers. As part of the new rules, broker-dealers will need to provide a brief relationship summary, Form CRS, to retail investors. Firms must be ready to comply with Reg BI and Form CRS by June 30, 2020.

- The standard of conduct for investment advisers
- Form CRS relationship summary
- An interpretation of the "solely incidental" prong of the broker-dealer exclusion under the Advisers Act
