Investment Management and Private Funds: What's Happening Now?

Speakers: Gregory J. Nowak and Mark T. Dabertin

5:00-7:00 PM (ET)
Investment Management and Private Funds: What's Happening Now?

Beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served.

Join your host, Pepper partner Gregory J. Nowak, for a series of candid, interactive discussions on what is going on now in the investment management world, including issues that affect private funds and their managers.

Alt finance has become a popular investment class for private funds, BDCs, SMAs, PE and hedge funds. This month, Mr. Nowak will be joined by Pepper special counsel Mark Dabertin for a survey of what makes this such an attractive investment class, and the potholes and pitfalls to avoid.

The discussion will cover:

  • Are these investments securities?
  • How do MCAs, P2P and other alt finance approaches work?
  • How do the “valid when made” and “true lender” doctrines intersect?
  • Is the “fintech” charter viable?”
