“Hedge funds have experienced explosive growth and on some days account for 30 to 40 percent of the trading on U.S. equity markets,” noted Jim Hamilton, J.D., CCH principal securities law analyst. “Congress, the SEC and international regulators and standard setters are concerned about a number of issues raised by hedge fund activities, including the growing retailization of hedge funds and risk management. This newsletter is designed for professionals who need to be aware of regulatory, legislative and legal developments affecting hedge funds and other private equity vehicles, as well as the overriding issue of risk management.’’

Each issue reports on the key domestic and international regulators and standard setters that impact hedge funds and other private pools of capital, including the SEC, FASB, Federal Reserve Board, OCC, Treasury, IASB, U.K. Financial Services Authority, Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission and European Commission.
The newsletter covers the latest r egulatory news, with analysis of regulatory events impacting hedge funds and private pools of capital, including SEC rulemaking, enforcement actions, interpretations, FAQs, concept releases and no-action letters. A special section on the critical and increasingly important area of risk management includes news from the banking regulators and other regulatory players. Coverage ranges from legislative activity in the U.S. Congress to analysis of developments in the United Kingdom, European Union and other international entities. It also includes reporting on significant court decisions and discussion of the actions of domestic and international accounting standard-setters.
For example, the inaugural issue has extensive coverage of the principles-based guidance issued by the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets, including insight from a senior Treasury Department official; the views of John Dugan, Comptroller of the Currency on the common interests of regulators and bank risk managers; SEC Commissioner Annette Nazareth on hedge funds, derivatives and systemic risk; a U.K. working group on hedge fund disclosure; and a call for a study of hedge fund risk by G-7 finance ministers.
