President Trump’s Executive Orders on WeChat and TikTok state that they will go into effect on September 20th. These Orders coincide with increased SEC scrutiny of mobile messaging applications like WeChat and TikTok. This government focus is occurring at the same time that many private fund managers have expanded remote work practices and use of technology — including video conferencing, enterprise collaboration platforms and messaging applications — in order to maintain operations during Covid-19.
Join us on September 10th to hear from our regulatory partners as they discuss the confluence of these issues and offer considerations for private fund managers navigating the challenges impacting operations and dealmaking.
Topics covered will include:
- How to Assess the Impact of the Executive Orders on Private Fund Sponsors and Portfolio Companies
- How to Address SEC Concerns on Employee Use of Messaging Applications
- Implications for Recordkeeping Under the Advisers Act
