WASHINGTON – Stradley Ronon Partners David W. Grim and Nicole Simon hosted a coffee break session, “Board Perspectives: How Will Board Oversight Change Under the New Derivatives Rule?” at the Independent Directors Council’s Fund Directors Virtual Conference on Oct. 20. Grim and Simon discussed how board oversight responsibilities will change under new rule 18f-4 under the Investment Company Act.

Grim provides counsel on all aspects of investment management law. He assists clients with a unique perspective developed during his over 20 years of public service in the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Division of Investment Management, including his time as one of only a small number of people who has served as the top regulator of the asset management industry.

Simon counsels a diverse group of clients in the asset management industry, including registered investment companies, private funds, business development companies, investment advisers, commodity pool operators (CPOs) and commodity trading advisors (CTAs) on a full range of both traditional and novel regulatory issues. She frequently advises clients on the federal securities and commodities laws pertaining to the organization and registration of investment companies, including issues specific to funds of funds, manager-of-managers structures and interval funds, as well as the use of derivatives and alternative investments.
