Irwin M. Latner and Julia D. Corelli Quoted in Emerging Manager Monthly Article, 'Law Firm Offers Insights Into Private Investment Fund Models'

Irwin M. Latner, a partner in the Corporate and Securities Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton, and Julia D. Corelli, a partner with Pepper Hamilton LLP's Corporate and Securities Practice Group and co-chairs its Funds Services Group, a core constituent of Pepper’s Investment Funds Industry Group (IFIG), were quoted in the September 2018 Emerging Manager Monthly article, "Law Firm Offers Insights Into Private Investment Fund Models." The article discusses Mr. Latner and Ms. Corelli's paper titled A Strategic Comparison of Private Investment Fund Models.

"We've been working on more alternative structures. We've seen them being deployed and utilized by managers that have come to understand that they need to do something a little differently to align their interests with investors to raise capital," said Irwin Latner, a partner in Pepper Hamilton's Corporate and Securities Practice Group and co-author of the paper.

"Over recent years, investors are becoming more open to these types of structures, which in many ways align better with their interests," said Julia Corelli, a partner at Pepper Hamilton who co-wrote the piece with Latner. "A lot of these structures are ultimately ways to better align the manager’s interests with the investor's."

"The more investors understand and are comfortable with these alternatives, the more likely managers will be even more eager to adopt them," she said.

"You have to look at what the assets are, what the long term objectives of the managers are, what types of investors they are looking to invest in, and then you try and come up with the right structure for the manager," Latner said.
