Investment industry: SEC efforts to reform private equity fees
The Security and Exchange Commission last week proposed that private equity fund are recommended to provide data, every 3 months which would be a big shift in disclosure standards and reduce the ability for data sets to be manipulated and represented incorrectly. This shift would bring the private equity to parallel with public markets as the public funds will be used to even the spread of returns when the market is volatile, keeping bond yields low. The inspiration for change follows after a surge in reports over companies overcharging investors and providing inaccurate information on their performance.
Do you think this will help the SEC and private equity funding companies ?
