Best of the Web – May/June 2017

Welcome to the May/June 2017 BOTW.  Things got so crazy for your friendly neighborhood regulatory blogger that I missed a month, requiring a consolidation of the May and June BOTW.  That means a lot of great articles from the tops of the industry.  Alaric extols the virtues of automated compliance testing, ACA delves deep into performance reporting, and Pepper podcasts about valuation.  Meanwhile, Dechert looks to Europe, and Seward & Kissel worries about private equity compliance.  Sadis & Goldberg asks the most provocative question of the late spring: Should you fight the SEC?  (Spoiler Alert: They say you should.)
