Stradley Ronon’s COVID-19 Checklist & Considerations for Private Fund Advisers
With COVID-19 (i.e., the novel coronavirus) concerns and market volatility, advisers should consider compliance challenges that are likely to arise. This COVID-19 Checklist & Considerations for Private Fund Advisers highlights key compliance issues, questions and considerations with respect to the COVID-19 outbreak and government response. Please note that if an adviser does not document its compliance efforts, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will assume that such efforts did not occur. This checklist is not exhaustive and does not, for example, cover Commodity Futures Trading Commission considerations, which are discussed in a separate client alert.

Amidst uncertainty brought on by COVID-19 (i.e., the current coronavirus), advisers, broker-dealers, commodity pool operators and commodity trading advisors should continue to focus on effective implementation of compliance policies and procedures. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) will be judging the effectiveness and implementation of your policies during this crisis as part of your next exam. So how can you best achieve compliance during these chaotic times? This webinar will help you begin to address and document your compliance efforts. Remember that if you do not document your compliance efforts, the SEC and CFTC will assume that such efforts did not occur. Our speakers are Nicole Kalajian from Stradley Ronon and Marina Baranovsky of Scitus Consulting LLC.
