Our Financials team is hosting a call with Mr. Jason Mulvihill, General Counsel of the American Investment Council today at 1 pm EST to discuss the topic of carried interest treatment in the private equity industry.
The discussion will cover:
- A review of the current tax treatment of carried interest for investors and alternative asset managers. How did the current tax regime come about and what is the actual flow through to the alternative asset managers.
- Both Trump and Clinton are saber rattling for adjusting the status quo. What do these proposals look like and why is the PE industry a target?
- What is the likelihood of reform and what does the Congressional map look like for the issue should tax reform legislation proceed?
- What is the probability of a change in the current treatment and if quashed, is this issue off the table for the incoming administration?
