The Global Fund Valuation Forum provides the opportunity to hear from industry experts as they assess the regulatory landscape for mutual and private investment funds in the US. The agenda will dive deep into new regulatory demands from a valuations perspective and will address how fund managers can respond to increasingly rigorous reporting requirements.

Morrison & Foerster Partner Jay Baris will speak on a panel entitled “Evaluated Pricing and Due Diligence Requirements.” Topics will include:

  • An overview of the current US regulatory regime for valuations of mutual and private funds, how the rules are evolving and what they demand of fund managers from a compliance perspective
  • What are the main challenges faced by fund boards, advisers and their service providers when it comes to meeting their valuation obligations?
  • What should fund boards and managers be aware of when it comes to fund valuations, reporting on performance and adhering to key documentation and disclosure policies? What constitutes ‘best practice’?
  • Is it really necessary to use an external evaluator? If so, how should fund managers go about making their selection? What constitutes good due diligence?
  • What does the future hold in store? Which regulatory obligations will be keeping fund boards and advisers awake at night over the next 12 months?
