Intentionally designed to limit attendees to a smaller and selective attendance comprised largely of friends and friends of friends, the Alternative Asset Summit generates 3 days of hyper-networking and concentrated open and insightful discussions. This is a conference for investors and companies, and only a few, carefully-selected service providers. It touches all the hottest topics in alternative assets, including initial coin offerings (ICOs), crowdfunding, and more.
The biggest conference and expo in online investing is just around the corner. On September 5-6 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Crowd Invest Summit promises to bring 3,000+ attendees, which they break down as follows: 55% investors, 40% companies, and 5% service providers. VerifyInvestor.com will be there as part of the 5%, but we’ll be going with company clients and investor clients. Come say hello. We will have a booth, and our Co-Founder Jor Law will be speaking on the Legal Pitfalls in Crowdfunding panel.
In further Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) news and developments, on June 8, 2017, Chairperson Jay Clayton announced he was appointing two Co-Directors for the SEC Enforcement Division.

Securities practitioners, too, looked forward with anticipation to Clayton appointing the head of the Enforcement Division which is the largest division in the SEC. The co-director appointments in little more than a month after his own swearing-in indicate a strong commitment to enforcement by the new SEC Chairman.
