Our Approach

Our Client Relationships

Each firm is unique, and the compliance needs of private fund managers differ from other financial services firms. The nuances of private fund business models are not fully understood or appreciated by many compliance firms. The SEC’s private fund expertise and focus is constantly expanding. Regulators and sophisticated investors will expect firms’ compliance teams to have the requisite knowledge and expertise to fully understand the relevant compliance and regulatory landscape as well as the private fund industry. Through years of experience and focus on the private fund industry, core understands the unique challenges of private funds and can provide customized solutions to help private fund firms succeed in a competitive marketplace by meeting each client’s evolving needs.

Core assigns each client a dedicated team who works proactively with the firm to design an effective compliance solution. We focus on asking the right questions and listening carefully to understand your business. We leverage our extensive experience with hedge funds, private equity funds, venture capital funds, real state funds, energy funds, credit funds, and other alternative funds to provide expert advice and help you build the right compliance program. Core serves as an extension of your in-house team to provide the regulatory and compliance expertise your firm needs and that LPs and regulators expect.
