Private fund managers and investors are on high alert as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposes an aggressive new regulatory agenda. Its new draft rules have been described as a “sea change” and are intended to enhance regulation and protect investors in private funds. But do those investors need or want this protection? What are the broader policy issues? And what should fund managers and investors plan for? Join The Sidley Podcast host and Sidley partner, Sam Gandhi, as he speaks with two of the firm’s thought leaders on these subjects — Elizabeth Shea Fries and Stephen Cohen.
Liz is the managing partner of Sidley’s Boston office, global co-leader of the Investment Funds practice, and a member of the firm’s Executive Committee. She advises clients on a broad range of transactions, business and investment structures, and regulatory matters.
