Distribution Services

Gain control of your distribution channels and ensure compliance.

Growing assets while safely navigating the complex distribution regulatory landscape is a challenge. Regulators have heightened their focus on financial advisors and enforcement actions. They expect hedge fund, private equity, and registered fund managers to evaluate regulatory requirements and maintain strong compliance policies and procedures. Our Distribution Services team acts as an extension of your business to support your distribution strategy while ensuring compliance on the part of third-party representatives.
