RegEd will share best practices in licensing and registration and relevant regulatory updates with Securities & Insurance Licensing Association members.
At Wednesday’s SILA Heartland Chapter meeting, Michael Pouliot, head of sales for RegEd’s Enterprise Xchange Contracting, Licensing, and Registration solution, will offer SILA members ways to drive licensing and registration efficiencies that create a competitive advantage. Also, Brandi Brown, senior vice president of regulatory affairs for RegEd, will give a regulatory overview to attendees.
SILA’s members include licensing experts whose occupations encompass all aspects of insurance licensing and securities registration. “Licensing and registration regulations can be complex and are increasingly dynamic,” Brown said.
Brown will update SILA members on issues such as regulations regarding the sales of annuities, continuing education requirements for investment adviser representatives and the use of remote licensing exams due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Keeping up with regulatory changes and trends is essential to remaining compliant,” Brown said.
Firms benefit from streamlining their licensing and registration processes as well. “Efficient licensing and registration helps firms recruit top producers and enables them to quickly place business compliantly,” Pouliot said.
Optimizing licensing and registration also reduces costs and risks. For example, eliminating manual data entry and human intervention saves money while increasing accuracy, Pouliot said.
In his presentation at the SILA Heartland Chapter’s meeting, Pouliot will suggest steps that members can take to drive licensing and registration efficiencies. When combined with Brown’s regulatory updates, SILA members will have the latest information for operating efficiently and compliantly.
The presentations by Pouliot and Brown are examples of RegEd’s support of events that build the knowledge and advance the education of financial services compliance, credentialing, operations and IT professionals. RegEd is a long-time, active supporter of SILA in particular.
