Broker-dealers and their affiliates have been the recent target of multi-state unclaimed property audits conducted by contingent fee escheatment audit firms. This webinar will discuss the essential unclaimed property laws applicable to brokerage accounts, 401K plans and related financial products and services as well as the novel theories that have been advanced by auditors and imposed in settlements resolving these audits. The seminar also will address the extent to which adopting such escheat practices creates tension with other regulatory requirements and exposes broker-dealers to potential litigation or other challenges.
