By Katelyn Orrok | Tuesday, October 25th, 2016

To wrap up and round out our 6-week Risk Outlook Webinar Series, we spoke with John Cotronis, Executive Director at JP Morgan, about hedge fund risk management and governance. Specifically, he addressed the following questions:

  • What have you observed in recent years in terms of changes affecting hedge funds – particularly at the startup phase?

  • Have you noticed a marked shift in the importance managers are placing on risk?

  • Do the firms you typically engage with have staff on hand to manage risk – compliance officers, etc.?

  • In terms of corporate governance, where do you see investment firms excelling when it comes to implementing risk management controls and also fostering a culture of risk management across the firm?

  • Let’s talk a little bit about counterparty risk. What kind of criteria are you looking for that indicates to you a provider has the right risk management framework and best practice structure to support your clients?

  • A lot has gotten tougher for firms, particularly on the investment side with capital raising, also with regulatory reporting, etc. What areas of operations do you think have gotten easier for hedge funds over the years?

  • What is your assessment of outsourcing risk – is it higher or lower than managing various functions in-house?
