Regulatory compliance is an integral component of the insurance industry. Nearly every aspect of the industry is regulated by state or federal agencies. Everything from policy language to advertising can need review and/or approval from a regulatory authority. This podcast will give you a birds-eye view of what is regulated, and by whom, to lay the foundation for deeper discussions in the future.
