ACIC Private Notes November 2016
We hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family and friends. With the election and Thanksgiving behind us, it's time to stop "talking turkey" and focus on finishing up the year of Making Investments Great Again. Even as our amazing Annual Meeting and its catchy slogan linger in our thoughts, we are looking for content for our 2017 Spring Investment Forum. Please contact Cassie Poss with your ideas for program topics. Speaking of the spring conference, save the date: April 27-28 at the Four Seasons Hotel in Chicago. Please let us know if you have an interesting article idea or recent development to share with your ACIC colleagues; we would be pleased to consider your submission for our next issue of Private Notes. In this month's newsletter you will find links to a summary of the ACIC fall conference, thanks to our own Richard Rejino and an article written by Tom O'Connor, Kate Habershon and Katerina Heal from Morgan Lewis on the new Qualifying Private Placement Exemption in the UK. We have also included links to exciting job opportunities at some of our favorite private placement shops.

Private Placements and the Qualifying Private Placement Exemption
New regulations took effect on 1 January 2016 in the United Kingdom that introduce a new exemption from UK withholding tax that is intended to apply to certain debt finance arrangements and the issuance of debt securities between foreign lenders or investors and UK corporate borrowers or issuers that operate in private placement markets. This new exemption is known as the Qualifying Private Placement Exemption (QPP Exemption). For more information,
