HarbourVest CFO hire; NB’s Smith on regulation; summer reading

HarbourVest hired a new management company CFO; Brien Smith talks key regulatory issues facing private equity; CFO’s tell us what they’re reading this summer.

HarbourVest Partners: has hired a new management company CFO. Connor Hussey has the details.

Smith: In this video, Neuberger Berman’s COO of the private equity division Brien Smith talks about the key regulatory issues facing private equity, and he issues some advice to firms about the future of compliance.

Before you ask: the video was shot before the pandemic hit the states during January’s CFOs & COOs Forum in New York. We’ll have a few more of these videos for you in coming weeks, and each features advice and insights that have very much stood the test of time.

Summer reading: five CFOs told us what’s on their summer reading lists. Surprise: it’s not all finance. Indeed, one CFO said he’s reading “anything but” books about finance this summer.
