On Monday, September 13, 2021, Josh Jones, Joelle Simms, Lawrence Fenster and Taylor Bandy will present a Lawline webinar titled Protecting Senior & Vulnerable Clients from Financial Exploitation: Regulatory Updates and Best Practices.
Regulators estimate that there are almost four million annual occurrences of financial exploitation against seniors and other vulnerable clients. Given the aging of the investing population, that population's unique vulnerabilities, and their substantial wealth, all stakeholders can expect continued growth of this scourge.
During this program, panelists will discuss best practices to protect senior and vulnerable clients from exploitation and fraud while navigating the complex web of obligations under federal and state laws and FINRA rules. Speakers will:
- Discuss the uptick of senior financial exploitation in recent years
- Explore senior based rules and laws
- Identify best practices to protect their senior and vulnerable clients
- Provide alternative legal tools and remedies to protect senior and vulnerable clients
