Philadelphia partner Diana McCarthy spoke on a panel titled “Special Compliance Considerations for ETFs from Registration to Ongoing Monitoring” at Ascendant Compliance Management’s fall 2018 conference in San Diego. The three-day conference was titled “Decrypting Regulations: Cracking the Code to Powerful Compliance Programs.”
