Compliance, regulation and legislation for private equity

Stay aware of and in compliance with the constantly changing regulatory environment

The regulatory environment is constantly evolving and private equity professionals need to be sure that they are aware of and in compliance with the changes impacting both their funds and portfolio companies.

New revenue recognition standards mean financial reporting processes and systems have to change—if they have not already—to implement the new guidance and satisfy the new disclosure requirements. Equally as impactful and relevant for private equity executives is the impact of tax reform: knowing how key provisions may affect both funds and portfolio companies.
