The Dos and Don’ts of Investor Calls That Investment Managers Must Consider

Investor calls are a great way to provide transparency to private fund investors during these unprecedented times caused by the coronavirus pandemic. Even well-intended private fund managers, however, must be vigilant when hosting those calls to avoid certain pitfalls.

In a guest article, Troutman Sanders attorneys Genna Garver and Cot Eversole, along with Pepper Hamilton partner Julia Corelli, provide a series of “Dos” and “Don’ts” that fund managers should consider when planning and holding their investor calls.
