Private Equity Compliance Professionals


Private equity firms must comply with a variety of U.S. federal laws and regulations, as well as with the rules of self-regulatory organizations. These laws, rules, and regulations pertain to a private equity (PE) firm’s valuation practices, existing compliance programs, regulatory filing obligations, and cybersecurity preparedness, among many other issues. Compliance professionals implement and manage compliance monitoring and reporting programs at private equity firms and their portfolio companies. Only a small number of compliance professionals work in private equity, but many more are employed in other industries such as pharmaceuticals, energy, and banking.
