Anti-Corruption Compliance Webinar for Private Equity & Hedge Funds on February 7, 2012
Join us for an Ethisphere Webinar:
Anti-Corruption Compliance for Private Equity & Hedge Funds:
February 7, 2012, 1 PM to 2 PM
The Justice Department (DOJ) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are committed to aggressive enforcement of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and anti-corruption laws. In 2010, they launched an enforcement initiative against private equity and hedge funds. The implications of this new initiative are far-reaching and cut across all private fund operations, particularly when such funds are purchasing and acquiring foreign companies.
A 2011 survey of corporate executives, investment bankers, private equity executives, and hedge fund managers found that 63 percent of respondents reported that the FCPA and anti-corruption issues caused their companies to renegotiate or pull out of planned business relationships, mergers or acquisitions over the last three years.
- The implications of anti-corruption enforcement to the business operations of private equity and hedge funds;
- The extent to which officers, directors and employees at private equity and hedge funds can be held liable under the FCPA and other anti-corruptions law for violations;
- The impact of the FCPA and anti-corruption laws on the purchase and sale of foreign companies; and
- The need for private equity firms and hedge funds operating to re-tool their compliance controls and mechanisms to protect themselves from enforcement.
All participants will receive access to the live event, On Demand recording, presentation deck, copies of recent anti-corruption and anti-bribery articles and a complimentary FCPA/Anti-Corruption Program Diagnostic performed by a member of Corpedia’s Compliance Advisory Services team.
