PERT’s mission is to lead middle-market private equity professionals through the changing operational landscape.
Created in 2015, ACG's Private Equity Regulatory Taskforce (PERT) gathers together CFOs, CCOs, COOs, and GCs of middle-market private equity firms. Together, they interpret and navigate the often complex finance, operational, compliance, and regulatory issues affecting the industry.
