Last week AI Insight attended the ADISA Annual Conference in Las Vegas, NV. AI Insight’s Mike Kell, Senior Vice President of Business Development and Program Management, presented an update on Private Placement industry trends during the General Session.

Here are three key takeaways to consider:

  1. Similar to the recent IPA Vision Conference, Qualified Opportunity Zone investments were a prevalent topic. We recommend reading an article recently published by Sound West’s President Greg Genovese explaining more about the growing interest around these investments.
  2. RIAs are beginning to take a closer look at Alternative Investments. There has been an upward trend of portfolio allocation to alts among RIAs over the last couple of years. While the need for diligent product reviews and the associated paperwork present some capacity barriers, AI Insight was highlighted as the go-to research and compliance tracking tool to help streamline this process for RIAs.
  3. Regulatory processes for broker-dealers and RIAs are becoming more closely aligned. Broker dealer firms have prioritized implementing consistent due diligence policies. Given increased scrutiny, RIAs are becoming more like broker dealers with respect to advertising rules and implementing procedures given regulatory guidance to help increase transparency.
