Avalon Lake Partners has appointed Harris Bogner, an attorney and compliance expert, to head its compliance services group.
Bogner’s role at Avalon Lake Partners will be to work directly with clients to ensure they develop a strong understanding of their compliance obligations while providing them with practical, cost-effective solutions.
Avalon Lake Partners recently spun-out from WTP Advisors to focus on providing a comprehensive set of advisory services to the alternative asset management industry, namely hedge funds, private equity firms and family offices.
“Finding someone of Harris’ experience and business acumen is a major coup. He is the perfect complement to our seasoned team and adds the final element to our C-Level Suite of services,” says Lou Sala, managing partner and chief executive of Avalon Lake Partners.
As former chief compliance officer for Cadogan Management and compliance manager at Bessemer Trust, Bogner is being brought on at an especially critical moment, as second-round filers are now confronted with filing Form PF. In addition to addressing the task of completing and filing the Form PF, investment advisers have an extensive amount of regulatory demands placed on them due to other new regulations imposed on members of the financial services industry since Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Act.
“The addition of compliance services rounds out Avalon Lake’s Form PF diagnostic and software offering. This makes us one of the few who provide a comprehensive Form PF solution available in the marketplace,” says Ilicia Silverman, head of business development and partner at Avalon Lake Partners.
“I’m excited to be part of the highly accomplished team at Avalon Lake Partners,” says Bogner. “This firm is unique in both its experience, and quality of work, and I’m thrilled to be able to contribute to its leadership.”
