Building a Strong Compliance Foundation: Considerations for Real Estate Fund Advisers
Investing in real estate has its own challenges and nuances. Among those is a decision many real estate fund managers grapple with – whether to register with the SEC. The decision may be driven by investors or by a need to align a real estate fund with strong governance practices that comport with regulatory requirements. Yet real estate funds are unique in the application of a regulatory regime designed for private funds.

- Forming and structuring a real estate fund: Are they securities or not? The use of holding companies, joint ventures, GP and LP structures, management companies, and more
- Weighing the pros and cons of SEC registration: Asset thresholds, exemptions, and marketing considerations
- Compliance 101 for newly registered real estate fund advisers: what are the essential components of a compliance program, policies, and procedures
