Software leader shares perspective and discusses impact at industry seminar.

We saw this seminar as an excellent outlet for sharing our perspective on the impact of The JOBS Act and how our software platforms can help managers prepare for this shift in marketing opportunities.

Backstop Solutions Group (BSG), a leading Software-as-a-Service provider to the alternative asset management industry, will speak about The JOBS Act and its implications on the hedge fund community at a seminar later today, hosted by industry news company Infovest21. Among the topics to be discussed are the advantages and disadvantages of the new regulations brought on by this legislation.

“We saw this seminar as an excellent outlet for sharing our perspective on the impact of The JOBS Act and how our software platforms can help managers prepare for this shift in marketing opportunities,” said Geoff Surkamer, Global Head of Sales & Marketing for BSG.

The JOBS (or Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act) is a legislative package that was designed to jumpstart the economy by removing many of the regulations imposed on emerging growth companies seeking capital. Private investment vehicles such as hedge funds and private equity funds can also benefit from the new provisions instated by the act, as it allows them to advertise more openly - a practice that was forbidden to private fund managers until now.

Backstop’s investor relations and web-reporting platforms provide several key solutions for managers looking to take advantage of the lifted advertising ban. “The functionality offered by our software is perfect for managing the capital raising process,” said Surkamer. “We are excited to hear the reaction from the hedge fund community on what the new rules mean for them, and how we can help during this transition.”

The Infovest21 Seminar will take place on Thursday, May 24th at the Waldorf Astoria in New York. Backstop will also be offering a similar panel discussion exclusively for clients at their annual Backstop User Conference in July.
