Current and Former Regulators Advise Hedge Fund Managers on How to Prepare for SEC Exams

A panel of current and former regulators at PLI’s Hedge and Private Fund Enforcement & Regulatory Developments 2015 event discussed the use of “big data” by the SEC; explored the risk of CCO liability; and offered advice on preparing for SEC examinations. The program, entitled “SEC Inspections and Examinations of Private Equity and Hedge Funds,” was moderated by Barry R. Goldsmith, a partner at Gibson Dunn, and featured Lindi Beaudreault, an attorney at Murphy & McGonigle; Marc E. Elovitz, a partner at Schulte Roth & Zabel; Igor Rozenblit, a co-leader of the Private Funds Unit of the SEC Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations (OCIE); and John H. Walsh, a partner at Sutherland Asbill & Brennan and former OCIE acting director. This article summarizes the principal takeaways from the presentation.
