Morgan Lewis’s partner Brendan Kalb spoke on the panel for “Derivatives-Related Regulatory Developments and Compliance Challenges” at the PLI’s Private Fund Regulatory Developments and Compliance Challenges 2018.
The conference reviewed the private fund regulatory landscape, offering a first look at what the balance of the calendar will bring. Led by an expert faculty of private fund in-house counsel and leading firm lawyers, the 2018 program started with a review of derivatives-related compliance challenges, including an overview of the NFA’s 2018 hot button issues along with recent enforcement actions. The agenda also included a practical discussion among private fund general counsel and the issues they grapple with now and are anticipating in the near future. Finally, an in-depth analysis of the major compliance challenges for SEC-regulated funds rounded out the program. Examination priorities were addressed, along with many recurring compliance concerns, such as valuation and marketing.
