An active secondaries market and the advent of continuation vehicles provides regular liquidity to investors and makes the private equity asset class more attractive.

That’s according to Igor Rozenblit, former co-head of the US Securities and Exchange Commission’s private funds unit, speaking to affiliate title Buyouts. The unit examines private fund managers like private equity firms, which were forced to register as investment advisers by the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform act.

Rozenblit also discusses the proliferation of new products and the disclosure and compliance issues that come with that growth as the biggest regulatory risk private equity firms face today.
