Let's level the playing field between you and the SEC — not to mention the other regulators who you and your partners face.


This Capital Roundtable conference uniquely targets your needs, because all our speakers and panelists are your peers. 


Twenty CFOs, COOs, CCOs, CAOs, CIOs tackle the issues you do, and they’re going to share their hard-won recommendations (no service providers are speakers).

  1. Determine which areas in your operations are most problematic on OCIE Presence Exam visits.
  2. Learn which valuation procedures help firms like yours work more competitively.
  3. Find out where regulations are headed on --

    • fee waivers
    • accelerated monitoring fees

  • Learning how others are keeping their back offices and IT systems operating at peak performance

  2. Deal with managing partners whose views about regulators were shaped in the 1980s.
