Private Funds Advisory & Enforcement Defense

Looking Forward

In 2018, we expect the SEC to focus on the adequacy of corporate policies and procedures in detecting and preventing the misuse of material, non-public information. We also expect the Commission to continue to focus on fee disclosure and conflicts of interest, the allocation of expenses and investment opportunities at private equity funds and hedge funds, and valuation. We further anticipate that the SEC will increase its focus on cybersecurity with an emphasis on ensuring that private funds’ cybersecurity policies and procedures are both sufficient and being followed, and that such funds have conducted a cybersecurity “risk inventory.”
