BELMONT, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 12, 2013) - Actiance, helping organizations benefit from communications, collaboration and social networking, has announced that Sarah Carter, general manager of social business, will present on compliant social media strategies at the Financial Technology Forum's 'Social Media and Compliance' event in New York, NY on September 18, 2013. Hosted by Financial Technologies Forum, the one-day event will bring together compliance executives, social media experts and regulatory bodies to provide insight on the current social media landscape within the financial industry.

Carter will outline an actionable and immediate plan to enable financial brands to effectively and compliantly engage on social media and translate social strategy into ROI aligned with core business objectives. By expanding on these steps to social success with specific, real-word case studies, Carter will prepare attendees to unleash social business practices while overcoming the compliance challenges of the financial sector.

"Financial service professionals should not be scared of social media; in fact, quite the contrary. Social media can be one of the most effective tools in a firm's arsenal if it's deployed correctly," said Carter. "While regulatory requirements are a step in the process of creating a successful social business, there are a variety of ways to see actual ROI and value from social engagement. That's what I intend to impart during my seminar."
