Exercising Due Diligence to Avoid Investment Landmines for Institutional Investors and Fund Managers.
The DOL's and SEC's fee disclosure rules and heightened attention on compliance and valuation means corporate pension plans are subject to continued scrutiny. Plans that invest in alternatives must focus on properly vetting asset managers more than ever — or risk claims of poor governance and excessive risk-taking.
