The government's enforcement of the FCPA continues, with the latest focus being on asset management activities, including those involving sovereign wealth funds. Until recently, the Securities & Exchange Commission and Department of Justice have principally focused their investigative efforts on certain industry sectors, such as oil and gas and medical device/life science companies.  However, during the past several months, they have started making regulatory inquiries, and in some cases launched investigations, across a variety of asset managers, principally private equity firms, investment advisors and mutual fund complexes.  And, with the recent enactment of the UK Bribery Act, asset managers are in the crosshairs for regulatory investigations relating to bribery and corruption. This webinar will explore the legal implications of the SEC and DOJ's recent focus on asset managers and provide views on areas in which they can proactively manage the risk of an FCPA/anti-corruption investigation.
