The demand for alternative pooled and/or structured credit products such as private funds, Business Development Companies (BDCs) and Collateralized Loan Obligation (CLO) vehicles, affording exposure to  a growing spectrum of liquid as well as less liquid credit-based investment instruments has accelerated due to investors and their advisers searching for enhanced yields and active management of interest rate risks reducing traditional credit exposure and replacing it, (treating “credit” as an asset class) with exposure to alternative credit strategies and products.
The complexity and varying liquidity and risk profiles of these products presents a number of compliance issues requiring the customization of compliance programs of SEC registered asset managers’ active in this space.

Introducing Rashmi Airan: Keynote Speaker at NSCP National

Have you ever known someone who was so driven to succeed that they would do so by any means necessary? As Compliance Professionals, many would describe themselves as skeptics by nature. What happens when someone’s drive to succeed outweighs their desire to ask one more question?

Join us for our opening keynote address featuring Rashmi Airan, a first-generation immigrant of Indian parents and the oldest of three daughters, who was raised with high expectations to achieve. Having both professional and personal pressures, Rashmi aspired to become a successful lawyer graduating with honors from Columbia University. During the housing boom, she was recruited to work with a local real-estate developer who later engaged in questionable business practices. Rashmi’s drive to succeed financially and to give her children the best life possible created an ethical blind spot for her.
