Ep. 65 The Long-Short | Part II: The most important court case you’ve never heard of

Published: 28 June 2023

The Long-Short is a podcast by the Alternative Investment Management Association, focusing on the very latest insights on the alternative investment industry.

Each episode will examine topical areas of interest from across the alternative investment universe with news, views and analysis delivered by AIMA’s global team, as well as a host of industry experts.

This week, we delve back into the most consequential legal campaign by the US SEC you may still not be aware of. AIMA is standing as a friend of the court against the regulator's endeavour to redefine the nearly century-old definition of a securities dealer.

As we stand on the cusp of several court rulings that could up-end the market dynamic as we know it, we examine another unusual case the SEC has brought forward in its under-the-radar attempt to significantly widen the net of the Exchange Act.

To navigate you through the twists and turns of this legal saga we are joined by Gabriel K Gillett, Partner at Jenner & Block, and Suzan Rose, AIMA's Senior Advisor for Government and Regulatory Affairs who are closely linked to one of these newer cases: Keener v SEC.
