With Election Day around the corner, don’t forget to get out and vote this week. So much of our industry is heavily regulated, so this is your chance to provide your input. A great article on the subject can be found here:http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/02/upshot/the-vital-role-of-the-occasional-voter.html
And for the compliance folks, I found this article “Doing No Evil, At Least in the Morning” by Matt Richtel to be absolutely fascinating. Apparently our ability to self-regulate declines as the day goes on. This has interesting implications not only for detecting bad behavior, but also for establishing new positive behaviors.

Lastly, there was a great interview with Fiona Reynolds of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment. She is working to harness trillions of dollars in collective assets to bring responsible investing into the mainstream.

Please note that noon today is the deadline for our Houston C-Suite Dinner so register now to avoid disappointment.
Additionally, due to speaker schedule conflicts, we have had to postpone our Dallas C-Suite event until February. We will be giving refunds and posting the new event shortly. For our Austin members, take a moment to sign up for November’s Casino Night. Bring your significant other, colleagues and friends for this great fun evening overlooking Lady Bird Lake and downtown!
We look forward to seeing you all at an event soon!
