MILWAUKEE – Quest CE, premier provider of compliance training and tracking technology solutions, today announced the addition of the new Firm Element course, “Mergers and Acquisitions: 2020 and Beyond,” to its e-learning catalog.

Many financial professionals are familiar with the general lexicon around mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and may have even experienced such events within their own employer group. With mergers and acquisitions being a regular part of business, it’s important to understand the key terms, players, and process before diving deeper into the regulatory and compliance impacts. This course is designed to give firm members a better understanding of this common business aspect while discussing the motives behind M&A activity, the construction of M&A deals, as well as recent M&A activity that focused on ESG due diligence and modern regulations.

Course Topics Include:

  • M&A Key Terms and Information
  • Pre-2020 Expectations
  • Impact of COVID on M&A Activity
  • Compliance Due Diligence
  • Role of ESG in M&A Activity
  • CDD and the Current Regulatory Environment
  • Evolution of the FCPA
  • Best Practices from the SEC and DOJ
  • 2017 DOJ Corporate Enforcement Policy
  • 2019 Evaluation of Corporate Compliance Programs
