Office of New York City Comptroller John C. Liu - http://www.comptroller.nyc.gov/
*** I have not yet met new NYC Comptroller John Liu, but he already seems to be a vast improvement over his predecessor (and not just because he quoted my obscenity in his official announcement of Larry Schloss as CIO). The latest example is that Liu this morning announced that he would lift the ban on private equity placement agents, with the following conditions: 1. Placement agents must be registered with the SEC and/or FINRA 2. Placement agents must describe the services provided 3. Placement agents must demonstrate that they have helped raised at least $500 million from other entities (i.e., not NYC) in two of the past three years. Moreover, those using placement agents now would be required to disclose their usage, including any associated fees. Fund managers seeking NYC business also would be required to disclose any contacts with Comptroller’s Office employees, and would be precluded from providing any gifts or campaign contributions to NYC pension officers. - Rachel Strate
