Panel Discussion: Private Funds/Markets and Outbound Investments in Countries of Concern

Investors in private funds and in the private markets are increasingly concerned that a lack of transparency around outbound investments, especially those in "countries of concern", may be funding human rights abuses, the military-industrial complex of countries, and the development of sensitive technology. 

This panel will first discuss the problems the lack of transparency into outbound investments in countries of concern pose and how the SEC as a disclosure focused agency can provide investors, many of whom manage money on behalf of public employees, with additional information that would allow them to decide the suitability of their investments. These disclosures could also help investors better assess how exposed their investments may be to geopolitical risk.

Panel Discussion Regarding Audit Committee Workload and Transparency

This panel will focus on the role of the audit committee, which is rapidly changing, where many audit committees now oversee a variety of emerging risks while balancing an ever-increasing workload. Simultaneously, there is a larger focus on the audit itself with the PCAOB taking a fresh look at auditing standards. Risks continue to emerge and evolve. The presenters and the panel will explore how audit committees are keeping pace with shifting responsibilities and priorities, and whether existing audit committee disclosures adequately benefit investor needs.
