2017 Hedge Fund General Counsel and Compliance Officer Summit
 

            

Now in its eleventh year, Corporate Counsel's Annual Hedge Fund General Counsel and Compliance Officer Summit provides a forum for hedge fund managers and investors to acquire the tools and best practices they need to tackle these issues and apply them within their own firms.

2017 Conference Highlights Include:

  • Examining the legal and compliance implications of the new products hedge funds are launching as many move away from active management
  • Fund structuring issues such as the Carried Interest Loophole
  • The impact of Brexit on the marketing and operation of hedge funds overseas
  • Evaluating strategies for negotiating with investors in a challenging fundraising environment including a “1 or 30” fee structure
  • Exploring why private equity has become attractive to hedge funds and what type of hedge fund has the capability to hold illiquid investments
  • Understanding the SEC priorities under the new administration
  • Breaking down the SEC Custody Rule
  • The ethical considerations of using Big Data as an information channel
  • Roundtables featuring intimate conversations on topics such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Social Media, Activism, Amendments to Form ADV and more

It is more crucial than ever that hedge funds have an effective legal and compliance program in place. Understanding the implications of the latest regulatory rules and guidance is a must. You need to have solutions and strategies for addressing legal and operational issues associated with managing investors, fund structuring, marketing and conducting business in general – a particularly challenging mandate as the industry faces difficulty generating the returns they once did and is seeing a trend away from active management.
