Develop and manage a private equity compliance program
Compliance has become one of the fastest-growing areas in the private equity (PE) space. Mirroring trends from the hedge fund industry, recent surveys indicate that PE managers rank compliance as the single most challenging aspect of their business. Reports also indicate that PE compliance spending has rapidly outpaced other PE operating costs with recent estimates indicating that individual PE funds on average spend at least 15 - 20% of their operating budgets on this area. General Partners (GPs) have also significantly ramped up the hiring of private equity compliance related roles.
Private Equity Compliance provides current and practical guidance on key private equity (PE) compliance challenges and trends. Packed with detailed, practical guidance on developing and managing a private equity compliance program, it offers up-to-date case studies and an analysis of critical regulatory enforcement actions on private equity funds in areas including conflict of interest, fees, expenses, LP fun raising disclosures, and valuations.

From the Back Cover
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.
