Dodd-Frank Implementation: Considerations for Private Equity and Hedge Funds

January 2011

The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank) which was signed into law by President Barack Obama in the summer of 2010 is far-reaching and will have a significant impact on how financial services firms conduct their businesses. On October 18, 2011, the FWA partnered with Grant Thornton LLP to deliver a panel discussion and reception focusing on the most recent implementation considerations for private equity and hedge funds. The audience enthusiastically participated and topics included registration requirements, restructuring considerations, implementation and best practices, focus areas of SEC examinations, and cost effective ways to comply with Dodd-Frank. Look out for similar professional development and industry events in the coming months.
