The September edition of the Alternative Investor is out today, which takes a deep dive into the secondaries market, a sector that is firmly on the rise, including:

  • Tyrus Capital’s Gunter Waldner gives an overview of where the secondary market currently sits, which he describes as being “the most attractive environment for secondary buyers since the GFC.”
  • With Hedgebay Securities being around since 1999, Andrew Kurian is well-positioned to write about the evolution of the space and the importance of secondary liquidity.
  • Multiplicity Partners’ Andres Hefti looks at a selection of the more interesting “niches” in the secondary market.
  • PwC’s David Selden, Nick Jones, Albertha Charles and Jeremy Evans combine to write about third-party transaction valuations in the secondary market.

The September edition also takes a look at the past month’s performances and a selection of stories from further ‘record’ fundraisings, a growing war for talent, failed bids, legal actions, popularity of private credit, charity donations and a new monthly section, Letter from America, written by Prosek’s Mark Kollar.

Our Regulatory roundup in this month’s edition includes the following:

  • SEC adopts proposed rules relating to private fund advisers
  • SEC charges investment adviser for misrepresenting hypothetical performance of investments
  • CFTC charges unregistered commodity pool operator with fraud and misappropriation
  • SEC and CFTC charge multiple Wall Street firms with widespread recordkeeping failures
  • SEC charges Fund Administrator for missing red flags
  • UK investment research review
  • FCA (and PRA) consult on their rules on the securitisation markets
  • The risks of non-firm-approved messaging platforms
