Quest CE Releases Fixed Income Securities Course

MILWAUKEE – Quest CE, premier provider of compliance training and tracking technology solutions, today announced the addition of the new Firm Element course, “Compliance Issues for Fixed Income Securities Including Structured Notes,” to its e-learning catalog.

In recent years, regulators have placed a larger focus on the need for price fairness for retail investors. To address this need, this course discusses fixed-income investing from multiple angles. Additionally, the course will talk about the electronic platforms from FINRA and the MSRB, which required that broker-dealers report transactions in close to real-time, among other changes brought about including increased customer disclosures, application of best execution requirements, and more price transparency in general for the average investors. 

Course Topics Include:
