How To Prepare for the Changes Ahead

May 19, 2010
New York, NY

Organizers: Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP and Navigant Consulting, Inc.

Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP and Navigant Consulting, Inc. invite you to join us for a panel discussion highlighting the challenges and opportunities associated with doing business in this new regulatory environment.

With private fund manager legislation looming just around the corner, now is the time for hedge funds and private equity firms to prepare for the changes ahead. Whether the new rules simply include mandatory registration of managers to private funds, or change comes in the form of broad based requirements and limitations, firms can expect increased regulatory scrutiny and stricter enforcement at both the federal and state levels. In order to remain competitive, fund managers will need to consider the strategic, operational and structural changes required to mitigate regulatory risk.

Our speakers will offer practical guidance for private fund managers, including:

  • Inside the Beltway: An assessment of proposed private fund provisions
  • Evolving compliance and operations models to prepare for increased regulation
  • Key SEC, CFTC and state enforcement themes for 2010 and beyond
  • Compliance best practices: Preparing for SEC and other regulatory exams
