“How did it get so late so soon? Its night before its afternoon. December is here before its June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?” (Dr. Seuss)

 

Welcome to the December 2016 BOTW.  Was it the end of a year or the end of an era?  Only time will tell.  But, the regulatory world just keeps rolling along.  A former SEC counsel at K&L Gates offers his views on a federal fiduciary standard for private funds.  Drinker Biddle untangles insider trading. Sadis offers advice on sub-adviser performance marketing.   The only foolproof strategy is knowledge.
