In the evolving landscape of private fund management, firms are grappling with the complexities introduced by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC’s) Private Funds Adviser Rules (IA-5955). These new regulations, aimed at enhancing transparency and protecting investor interests, have prompted many firms to re-evaluate their operational, reporting, and compliance practices.

To help understand this transition, we recently hosted a series of webcasts covering various aspects of the new regulations. During these sessions, a series of polling questions were conducted to help benchmark readiness and understand the specific pain points that firms are facing.

In this downloadable infographic, we capture some of the findings and examine what they mean for firms, providing valuable insights for firms to digest when planning for compliance. These include:

  • Performance reporting is proving a challenge
  • Firms are facing operational hurdles caused by the Restricted Activity Rules
  • The new rules place an impact on terms and relationships with limited partners
  • Proactive planning is pivotal to achieving compliance
