Financial Markets and Funds partners David Dickstein, Christian Hennion and Richard Marshall will co-present a hands-on, practical webinar titled, "Form CRS — A Practical Workshop to Get It Done," from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m. (ET) and 11:00 to 12:00 p.m. (CT) on Wednesday, March 4.

The webinar will guide registered investment advisors and broker-dealers on how to complete Form CRS, a form that requires investment advisers and broker-dealers to provide retail investors with simple, easy-to-understand summary information about the nature of their relationship with the investment adviser or broker-dealer.

Form CRS cannot be filed until May 1 and must be completed within a short, two-month window. Broker-dealers and investment advisers need to consider whether they need to file the form and understand the various challenges that come with completing it.

The webinar will address:

  • Which clients need to receive Form CRS and how should it be delivered?
  • How can the required content be condensed into two pages?
  • How should the difficult "conversation starters" be answered?
  • How can the liability risks be mitigated?
  • How does Form CRS harmonize with other required filings?
