Compliance concerns for large private funds


For large private equity (PE) and hedge funds, compliance is critical to successful operation, ensuring regulatory adherence and sustainable growth. As we navigate 2024, large funds face unique compliance challenges that require robust and efficient solutions.

This blog examines these entities’ top compliance issues and illustrates how Stand On The Right’s software facilitates compliance management effectively.

1. Cybersecurity and safeguarding data

The increasing digitalisation of financial data makes large funds prime targets for cyber threats. Enhancing cybersecurity measures is essential to protect sensitive information against potential breaches. Stand On The Right’s robust security protocols help in conducting regular risk assessments, establishing comprehensive incident response plans, and minimising human error risks through effective safeguards.

Stand On The Right simplifies these tasks by automating the compilation and submission of Form ADVs and Form PFs, ensuring compliance with SEC regulations through its full audit history capabilities.

3. Employee trade monitoring and conflict of interest

As staff numbers grow, monitoring employee trades and managing conflicts of interest become increasingly complex.

This capability is crucial in preventing legislative breaches such as front running and insider trading, thereby maintaining the integrity of the fund’s operations.

4. Complex valuations, fees, and expenses

Accurate valuation of assets and proper allocation of fees and expenses are pivotal for large funds, as emphasised by several SEC risk alerts. Stand On The Right aids in this area by providing tools to systematically monitor transactions and activities, ensuring compliance with partnership agreements and reducing inaccuracies in financial reporting.
