Like many of the other professionals inside private equity firms, fund administration and compliance officers know what it’s like to wear multiple hats -- and to roll with changing times.

No longer regarded as living in the back-office, they’re now front and center every day, and busier than ever before.


Register Now to attend our annual all-day conference on

Best Practices for Overseeing PE Fund Administration & Compliance
on December 12, 2017, in New York City.


Come hear senior fund administration professionals report how their roles are changing and provide concrete examples of how they navigate the challenges of regulatory exams, increased LP reporting requirements, and burgeoning amounts of data.

 Here are some of the many reasons for all this change --


  •  Even though fund administrators may have hoped the regulatory burden imposed after the financial crisis would have shrunk, that burden remains substantial. And with tax reform in the wind, fund and compliance teams must also focus on what any reforms may mean at the firm, fund, and portfolio company levels.


  •  Fund managers are being asked to analyze more and more data, and to find new ways to use it. Of course, data can also create risks -- e.g., cyber threats that have recently hobbled some major companies have focused attention on just how much data PE firms have, and on whether or not it is secure.


  •  Outsourcing alternatives have multiplied. Firms have begun to think of outsourcing in terms of what functions they should outsource, rather than as an all-or-nothing concept.


  •  LPs are also requesting customized reports, and, increasingly, reports on softer topics, like workplace satisfaction and sustainable business initiatives. Many LPs are doing separate due diligence calls around operations before investing. And, of course, co-investments with LPs are the new norm, which means even more reporting and regulatory red tape for fund operation professionals.


Firms are reacting in various ways to these challenges --

  • Increasing their expense budgets.
  • Building out their operations management staff, and adding positions like “chief data officer” to their rosters.
  • Asking staffs at smaller firms to multi-task.
  • Requiring operations management professionals to participate in everything from structuring deals to making sure they comply with regulations, to using data to analyze the deal landscape, to building analytics around deal performance.

Click Here to hear our 20 speakers address such key points as --

  • Delineating the differences between what’s expected of fund administration and compliance professionals, and the role of the investor relations partners
  • Best practices around doing capital calls using a bank line of credit
  • How to handle co-investment structures
  • What sorts of online portals or apps work best for routine LP communications
  • The major questions LPs need to ask during due diligence
  • What’s new on the regulatory front
  • Is block chain catching on as a way to handle fund administration reporting needs?
  • How to deal with state-level regulations
  • Primary areas of focus in SEC exams
  • What tech improvements you need to make room for in your budget now -- and what can wait
  • What new positions firms are adding in the operations management area
  • How to find and retain diverse fund operations management talent
  • What roles fund administration professionals are playing on investment, compliance, and valuation committees
  • The changing landscape of fund administration service providers
  • Cost concerns around outsourcing versus insourcing
  • Which functions firms are increasingly outsourcing
  • How to resolve quality of service issues when outsourcing
  • Ongoing issues around data in silos and data in spreadsheets
