HarbourVest has received its fourth report on controls placed in operation, a Type II SSAE 16 (formerly SAS 70) Report – Private Equity Fund Administration Report on Controls Placed in Operation and Tests of Operating Effectiveness for the period from October 1, 2011 to September 30, 2012.  We believe that HarbourVest is one of the only independently-owned private equity managers to issue a SSAE 16 Report, which highlights our practice of providing best-in-class service to our clients.  HarbourVest remains dedicated to maintaining a strong control environment. We believe it is critical that this process and our extensive operational resources be transparent to our investors.
