    An indispensable tool

    The costs of non-compliance in today's environment can be staggering. The complexity and myriad of regulations in the securities industry provides enormous challenges for anyone in the financial advisory profession. Ms. Demby's book is THE go-to book to make sure that you are in compliance with and understand the regulatory requirements.
