On Monday, March 26, 2018, Owen Pinkerton will moderate a panel on BDCs at the ADISA Spring Conference in Orlando, Florida. Panelists will discuss the following topics:
- The regulatory treatment of non-traded BDCs vis-à-vis competing products such as interval funds and non-traded closed-end funds in areas such as multiple share classes, state Blue Sky registration and FINRA underwriting compensation.
- Discussion of the private BDC model and whether this may be an option for sponsors to consider in light of the regulatory challenges facing BDCs.
- What is a winning strategy for BDCs today and is this answer different today than it was two years ago?
- Is there a place for new sponsors with innovative ideas that are not supported by a large sponsor?
