Best of the Web – July 2016

Best of Web

 

Welcome to the July 2016 “Best of the Web.”  A good place to start this month’s BOTW is the treasure trove of presentations from K&L Gates’s annual conference.  Private equity firms should read RSM’s explanation of GIPS (it’s an acronym, not a snack food).   We also like Morgan Lewis’s outline of the regulatory environment for digital investment advisers and Stradley’s dissertation on hedge fund risks.  As Carl Sagan (from my beloved Cornell) said, “Those at too great a distance may, I am well are, mistake ignorance for perspective.”
