VIDEO: Withum’s Angell on the future of fees and expenses

Withum partner Tom Angell speaks with Graeme Kerr about how reporting has changed in recent years, the biggest areas of abiding controversy and where he thinks we will be in 10 years.

Fees and expenses are always a hot topic of debate in private funds. The Securities and Exchange Commission’s involvement, what funds can charge and how they charge it has changed significantly – and is still changing.

“The regulator’s involvement gave LPs the upper hand on the fees and expenses battlefield,” says Tom Angell, partner at Withum. “But I think that’s kind of pushed back [towards GPs] because, where else are you getting returns?”
