12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Central Standard Time

Please join Vedder Price attorneys John S. Marten, Jacob C. Tiedt and Kelly Pendergast Carr for a webinar presentation about the new, modernized framework for fund valuation practices recently adopted by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

The webinar will primarily focus on the required functions to be performed by fund advisers as "regulation designees" in determining the fair value of fund investments in good faith, including questions advisers may ask about current fair value practices.

During this webinar, participants will gain key insights regarding:

  • The identification, assessment and management of the valuation risks facing the funds advisers manage

  • The assessment of current valuation practices and methodologies and the implementation of additional review processes in light of the requirements of the new rule and related SEC guidance

  • Periodic testing of the appropriateness and accuracy of fair value methodologies

  • Considerations relating to selecting and monitoring third-party pricing vendors
