Today I am attending the Private Equity Tax and Compliance Practices 2010 conference. This afternoon, I’m joining Karen Hansen of Flag Capital Management on the CCO Roundtable.
Many private equity companies have escaped from having to register with the SEC and avoid the regulatory load of registration and compliance. The current draft of the financial reform bill has removed the exemption from registration that many private equity firms have enjoyed.
An earlier session by Jerome Boynton of Promus Capital will tackle investment adviser registration. Nick Prokos of ACA Consulting will discuss building a compliance office.
Karen and I will have a Q&A on how to tackle the regulatory puzzle.
