Outsourced Real Estate Fund Compliance for CCOs

With the SEC’s proposed Private Fund Rules to enhance private fund investor protection in February 2022, there is an industry wide expectation that there will be an increased focus by the SEC on RIAs to Private Funds.

Additionally, along with the increased focus by the SEC, Advisers to Private Funds and other pooled investment vehicles will be required to adopt and implement new/enhanced compliance policies and procedures.

Do you have enough internal resources or the right external resources in place?

Can you keep up with your regulatory requirements not only today, but in the future, as your regulatory obligations increase?

When partnering with Vigilant, we allow Advisers to focus on managing their business, growing their Limited Partner (“LP”) base, and other core competencies.

Through the following suite of solutions, Vigilant can either manage your entire compliance program or provide you with select support.
