Chief Compliance Officer, Partner
Bill joined NEPC at its inception in January 1986. Today he is a Partner in the firm with two areas of responsibility: Compliance and Operational Due Diligence. He is a member of the firm’s Management Group and Alternative Asset Committee.
Regarding Operational Due Diligence, Bill manages a team that evaluates hedge fund operations. This requires in-depth analysis of hedge fund managers to assess all facets of their trading, risk management, compliance and back office procedures. He meets with managers on a regular basis and attends industry conferences sponsored by organizations such as the Boston Hedge Fund Group and the Hedge Fund Business Operations Association.
For many years Bill managed NEPC’s own internal operations, including our performance measurement and client reporting process. This entailed monitoring all the investment managers and custodian banks employed by our clients, and managing production of our quarterly performance reports. He was our liaison with State Street (formerly Deutsche Bank and Bankers Trust Company) for the ICC and was the chairman of the ICC Product Development Committee. For three years Bill assisted with CIPM program development as a consultant to the CFA Institute. Prior to joining NEPC, he worked as an Analyst for Berents Capital Management in Boston and for the Hartford Insurance Group.
Bill received his M.B.A. in Finance from Babson College and his B.A. in Mathematics from Bates College.
