RegEd, the leading provider of compliance technology solutions to insurance companies, broker-dealers and other financial services firms, is pleased to announce its participation in the Association of Insurance Compliance Professionals’ (AICP) Annual Conference 2016 in Orlando, FL, October 25-28, 2016.

The 29th AICP Annual Conference, an educational forum for Property and Casualty and Life and Health insurance compliance professionals, will offer more than 60 concurrent sessions including ethics, evolving cyber threats, market conduct, corporate governance, culture of compliance, and regulatory oversight. Presenters and panelists include senior compliance executives from leading insurers, as well as subject matter experts and industry regulators.

During the conference RegEd will showcase the CODE® Enterprise Compliance Management Platform. CODE supports an integrated suite of compliance management solutions, including:

Regulatory Change Management: Facilitates a workflow-enabled, closed loop process that provides insurers with everything they need to be aware of, comply with, and demonstrate compliance with relevant regulatory changes.

Policies and Procedures Management: Provides an enterprise workflow and task management solution that enables end-to-end administration and oversight of all elements of the firm’s policies and procedures, including policy approval, policy distribution, attestation management, testing program management and deficiency and case management.

Market Conduct Exam Management: Enables firms to effectively prepare for and efficiently manage tasks related to market conduct exams, significantly reducing the time and resource commitment required during a market conduct exam.

Debra Freitag, Chief Strategy Officer at RegEd, stated, "The AICP Annual Conference is an important forum for insurance industry compliance professionals, who must effectively manage volumes of regulatory change, readily respond to document requests from examiners, regulators and internal stakeholders, and be well-prepared to demonstrate a strong compliance program in the event of a market conduct exam.” Freitag continued, "We’re excited to support the event again this year, and to share our expertise and highlight RegEd technology solutions and ways they help our clients close non-compliance gaps and reduce risk."

RegEd representatives will be on-site to meet with conference attendees to understand their compliance challenges and discuss solutions that enable insurers and other financial services firms to meet compliance requirements and proactively manage their compliance program.

The RegEd conference exhibit will be located at booth #19 in the conference’s main exhibitor hall at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. For more information on RegEd or its attendance at the AICP Annual Conference, please call 800-334-8322 or email sales@reged.com.

RegEd Announces Partnership With IRI on Training to Help Industry Professionals Comply With the DOL Fiduciary Rule

RegEd, the leading provider of Compliance Education and Product Training solutions for the financial services industry, has announced a partnership with the Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) to offer a series of courses for financial professionals and home office personnel as part of a new training initiative. The modules will enable firms in the securities and insurance industries to effectively train employees on the new and changed standards that have been the product of the DOL fiduciary rule.

“Firms must be equipped to prepare their employees and partners to comply with fiduciary rule requirements,” commented John M. Schobel, Chief Executive Officer at RegEd. “As the industry’s understanding of the rule continues to evolve, effective training content will be developed by subject matter experts who are continuously monitoring the regulatory landscape. We’re pleased to be a part of this initiative, which has been shaped with input from more than 800 industry professionals representing more than 100 leading firms.”

RegEd delivers more than 1,250,000 CE courses and insurance certificates annually. Firms rely on RegEd’s regulatory, compliance and education experts for their deep domain expertise and ability to consistently generate timely educational content that enables organizations to effectively prepare their employees to adapt to changing requirements.

“Training will be one of most critical parts of implementing the DOL’s Fiduciary Rule, which is the most massive regulatory change to impact the industry in decades,” said Cathy Weatherford, IRI President and CEO. “We are proud to partner with RegEd on this initiative so that we can support financial professionals and home office personnel through this process by providing them with clear, streamlined and digestible training.”

The first course in the series of training modules is fully developed and will be available in October (insurance CE credit will be applied for).  Module One provides a comprehensive overview of the DOL rule and the Best Interest Contract (BIC) Exemption, including the following sections: About the DOL Fiduciary Rule; Exceptions from the Rule; Being an ERISA Fiduciary; Understanding Your Fiduciary Responsibilities; The Best Interest Contract (BIC) Exemption; Level-Fee Advisors under the DOL Fiduciary Rule; Impact on Advisor Compensation; Recommending Rollovers under the DOL Fiduciary Rule; Impact on Client Relationships; and Special Rules for Proprietary Products and Fixed-Rate Annuity Contracts. This module is appropriate for anyone whose job is affected by the rule.

Three additional modules are also in development, including a two-part course for financial professionals who are fiduciaries under the new rule to meet the requirements of the new best interest standard, and a course focused on the responsibilities of broker-dealer and insurer home office personnel under the rule.
