With Memorial Day and graduation over, summer is officially here. The CFP had a very busy May hosting three different events. On May 8th, the CFP and Dingman Center for Entrepreneurship hosted an event on the JOBS Act and how to protect the crowd in crowdfunding. The SEC had recently provided some clarification on the rules surrounding the JOBS Act, but two states are now suing the agency claiming the rules wrongfully scale back their powers to police the deals.
Bloomberg also reported on the boom in shadow bank lending, a topic covered that the CFP’s conference held in conjunction with The Clearing House on May 11th. The presentations and research discussed at all three events can be found on the CFP’s website.
