ETHICS: Will Och-Ziff Capital Survive?
Hedge fund investors extremely dislike when their asset managers get investigated and are found guilty by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). It brings both reputational risk for the asset owners, such as pensions and sovereign wealth funds, as well as liquidity risk. Interestingly, hedge funds are more negatively affected and face faster redemptions when the SEC finds them guilty versus custodial banks, large traditional asset managers and private equity firms.
Yes, Och-Ziff has tens of billions under management, but will institutional investors place their faith in an asset manager who was founded guilty by the FCPA?
