State of the Financial Services Industry (Video)

Paul Smith, CFA, managing director of the APAC region at CFA Institute, appeared on CNBC’s Squawk Box Tuesday to discuss new trends emerging in the financial services industry. It was the same day that the SEC announced charges in what may be the biggest-ever insider-trading job, and the host asked Smith whether it has been getting easier for regulators to identify insider trading. “Whistle-blowing is becoming a much more acceptable behavior,” Smith said. “People are much less afraid to speak out than they were.”
