Strategic Road Map for Alternative Investment Fund Managers

Leveraging current infrastructure to meet evolving and multiple regulatory reporting requirements

When: Monday, June 23, 2014
Hosted by: New York, NY

Over the past few years, the alternative investment sector has experienced dramatic shifts in the regulatory landscape requiring alternative investment managers to handle an increasing number of compliance requirements and growing operational costs, to meet the demands set by various regulators such as SEC, CFTC, and the European National Competent Authorities (NCAs).

The way to improve efficiencies and bring down costs in the ever-changing landscape of regulatory reporting is to gain strategic value from regulatory reform with an integrated approach.

Regulations are placing a heavy burden on fund managers, compliance, and legal and IT departments, and are impacting the firms’ overall business strategies. The Alternative Community is also looking for competitive advantage—client reporting is a focus area forcing firms to rethink how they disclose information not only to the regulators, but also to their clients.

KPMG LLP (KPMG) and AxiomSL are pleased to host a roundtable and share forum discussion that will enable fund managers and advisers to share their concerns, approach, and best practices. Hear from our panel of industry professionals including Brian Fortson, Managing Director Goldman Sachs Investment Management Division, Mary McHenry, Associate Director, Compliance, National Futures Association (NFA), Bruce Runciman, Senior Vice President, AxiomSL, and Rabih Ramadi, Principal, KPMG on the four key elements to Building a Strategic Road Map:

  • Standardized and Integrated approach
  • Regulatory reporting filing cycle
  • Automation versus manual process
  • Client reporting

The roundtable and share forum discussion is a peer-learning event. Following the roundtable, participants will have the opportunity to break into smaller groups for a peer-to-peer exchange of best practices.
