In May 2008, IOSCO published a report identifying potential risks emerging from the private equity industry and outlining how IOSCO intended to address these risks. One of the key risks identified by this report was the potential for material conflicts of interest to exist among the parties involved in private equity sponsored transactions. In light of this the report recommended that further work should be carried out to fully identify those conflicts of interest risks which are particular to private equity and to explore the extent to which these risks are subject to adequate methods of mitigation. This report provides a summary and the conclusions of the recommended follow-up work on conflicts of interest in private equity.
