As private fund managers continue to face headwinds on multiple fronts, one thing remains clear: disruption will continue. Notwithstanding these challenges, enormous opportunities are available to those willing to adapt their business plans accordingly. These points came across in a recent interview the Hedge Fund Law Report conducted with Anthony Cowell, partner and head of alternative investments at KPMG in the Cayman Islands.
