Everything You Want To Know About Alternative Credit Funds
On Tuesday, February 5th, 2019, the National Society of Compliance Professionals (NSCP) and Alaric Compliance Services, LLC hosted a free webinar discussion on Alternative Credit Funds, the first in a series on Credit Products.
The demand for alternative pooled and/or structured credit products such as private funds, Business Development Companies (BDCs) and Collateralized Loan Obligation (CLO) vehicles, affording exposure to a growing spectrum of liquid as well as less liquid credit-based investment instruments has accelerated due to investors and their advisers searching for enhanced yields and active management of interest rate risks reducing traditional credit exposure and replacing it, (treating “credit” as an asset class) with exposure to alternative credit strategies and products.
The complexity and varying liquidity and risk profiles of these products presents a number of compliance issues requiring the customization of compliance programs of SEC registered asset managers’ active in this space.
The panelists for this discussion include Guy Talarico, CEO and Founder, Alaric Compliance Services, Carl Rizzo, Director, Alaric Compliance Services and Joseph McDermott, FRM, Compliance Manager, THL Credit.

- Credit as an Asset Class
- Alternative Credit Strategies, Market Participants, Sourcing/Investment Process
- Private Fund Structuring
- Key Regulatory and Operational Compliance Issues
