    EMEA Star Conference 2021

    APRIL 29, 2021

    A good reputation is everything. Without it, a business won’t be in business for very long. Compliance officers are a firm's reputation guardians—keeping their organizations operating within the confines of financial regulation and free from the kinds of conflicts of interest that could endanger that reputation.

    The 2021 EMEA Conference is an event you won’t want to miss. We’re gathering the region's best and brightest compliance professionals as well as Star staff from around the globe. You’ll be able to meet, mingle, listen, and discuss ways to get the most out of STAR and your compliance program overall.

    Of course, the region's "best and brightest" includes you. The people on the front lines of compliance. The people with the best working knowledge of the STAR Platform. As you look to us for guidance on optimizing your compliance program, we’ll be looking to you for guidance on optimizing STAR.
