TOP 5 PRIVATE EQUITY PRACTICES GRABBING SEC ATTENTION

Private equity firms are facing unprecedented regulatory scrutiny regarding their business practices. Following a May 2016 speech from Andrew Ceresney, Director of the Division of Enforcement of the SEC, highlighting the SEC’s intensifying enforcement focus on private equity fund practices, we have witnessed several high profile cases focused on fee and expense practices of private equity firms. Since the speech in mid-2016, private equity advisers have paid over $100 million in civil monetary penalties to the SEC and/or disgorgements or reimbursements to fund investors.

discusses what private equity practices are under the SEC’s microscope and what stakeholders can be doing to protect themselves.
