Intensified enforcement efforts by international authorities and anti-corruption laws such as the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and the UK Bribery Act have now presented an increased liability in the private equity and hedge funds sector.
A recent survey of corporate executives, investment bankers, private equity executives and hedge fund managers, found that 63 percent of respondents reported that the FCPA and anti-corruption issues caused their companies to renegotiate or pull out of planned business relationships, mergers or acquisitions over the last three years.
Private equity firms and hedge funds operating in the international arena must re-tool their compliance controls and mechanisms to adequately operate in this stringent environment.
