Product description

From the Back Cover

Compliance is one of the fastest growing areas in the private equity arena. In today's complex marketplace and with stricter oversight from the US SEC and UK FCA, compliance spending has rapidly outpaced other PE operating costs. Private Equity Compliance offers a much-needed and down-to-earth guide that provides the most current information available on the key private equity compliance challenges and trends. This book provides a next-step resource to Hedge Fund Compliance, author Jason Scharfman's previous book. Private Equity Compliance puts the focus on providing real-world compliance information that is specifically tailored to the current compliance practices employed by general partners in today's private equity industry.

The book is filled with detailed, practical information on developing and managing an efficient and cost-effective private equity compliance program. The author provides guidance on the compliance obligations of private equity firms and their associated funds and offers an overview of the specific obligations of general partners, the role of limited partner advisory committees, and valuation compliance. In addition, Private Equity Compliance contains a wealth of current examples of private equity compliance documentation and policy manuals including compliance manuals, the code of ethics, common fee and expense disclosures and valuation policies.

Scharfman offers critical guidance on managing the compliance risks associated with cybersecurity and information technology. Suggestions for analyzing the strengths and weaknesses of GP compliance functions are included and the book presents insightful interviews with private equity professionals discussing key issues.

Private Equity Compliance is the must-have guide for any private equity investor and compliance officer who wants to develop and manage a reliable compliance program. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

From the Inside Flap

An Invaluable Guide for Developing and Managing A Private Equity Compliance Program

"The old attitude of doing just enough to not get in trouble with regulators is no longer acceptable when it comes to private equity compliance. Today, regulators and LPs have increasingly demanded that GPs actively embrace the challenge of implementing and maintaining a rigorous compliance infrastructure. GPs are increasingly viewing compliance as not a stumbling block, but an opportunity by which they can improve the oversight, governance and management of their firms and funds. By acknowledging the benefits of thorough compliance management in this way, all constituents in the private equity industry can benefit from continued dialogues in this area and improve the industry as a whole."
—From the Preface

From Jason Scharfman, a leading expert in the field of due diligence, comes an essential resource and guide to developing and managing an ethical and effective compliance program. In addition to the basic information, the book also explores compliance challenges and recent trends. Filled with compelling examples, current practices, information on the obligations of general partners and committee members, suggestions for analyzing a program, and much more, Private Equity Compliance is the much-needed guide for understanding compliance in today's private equity industry. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
