Foreside bolsters private fund practice for hedge funds, private equity firms and digital asset managers
Foreside Financial Group, LLC (Foreside), a provider of governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) solutions and technology offerings to clients in the global asset and wealth management industry, has bolstered its private funds practice.
This includes an expansion of dedicated personnel, enhancements to its technology platform, as well as the launch of a sub-practice dedicated to fund managers with investment strategies focused on cryptocurrencies, digital assets, venture capital studio funds, health care royalties, syndicated venture, and other alternative, non-conventional assets.
Foreside is responding to the market’s rising demand for experienced consultants enabled by technology whose focus is on the increasingly striated alts market. Foreside’s dedicated private funds team is composed of former securities attorneys, regulators, CCOs, and more, bringing a wealth of knowledge and industry expertise to the practice.
“Private fund advisors, including hedge funds and alternative investment managers, face continued regulatory scrutiny related to compliance and risk management,” says Mark Alcaide, senior managing director at Foreside. “Firms rely on Foreside not only to meet current requirements, but also to anticipate emerging regulatory and marketplace developments. Foreside provides private fund advisors with compliance, operational support and strategic advice to thrive in today’s complex regulatory environment.”
