Alternative asset managers are starting to take regulatory compliance more seriously, with a spike in hiring of compliance professionals this year. The shift comes even amid evidence that some managers, especially smaller ones, seem to take a dismissive view toward compliance – an attitude that experts say could cost them dearly in the long run.
Managers are responding by creating and filling new compliance positions, and there’s a lot of activity, says Jason Wachtel, founder and managing partner at JW Michaels & Co., a recruiting firm that specializes in compliance and legal hires. "Across the board, everybody’s hiring,” he says. “I’ve never seen it this busy before." He expects that pace to continue for the rest of this year and into 2015 and beyond, he adds.
