What's On My Mind
- Groundhog Day, déjà vu, and the new DOL Prohibited Transaction Exemption for Investment Advice Fiduciaries
“And of course, our industry is no exception. We are seeing strong trends toward decentralization, which were evident as you mentioned, prior to the pandemic, but I think just got a huge kick forward with the pandemic and what I think is interesting is most experts believe that this trend will have a residual impact. In other words, when this pandemic is ultimately over, we probably will not go all the way back to baseline, pre-pandemic levels.”
“And so the evolution that we are seeing is, we're seeing cybersecurity evolve from a fortress model to an endpoint security model.”
“...Going over and above and being a great compliance department, I think that was all part and parcel of that idea of being not just a good compliance department, but being a great compliance department.”
