Hedge Funds in the Current Environment: The Impact of DODD-FRANK & More

Hedge Funds in the Current Environment: The Impact of DODD-FRANK & More

It is a time of significant regulatory change for hedge funds and their managers. As a result of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, many previously unregistered managers will now have to register with the SEC. In addition, new regulations on swaps and derivatives will have a significant effect on trading by hedge funds. SEC and other enforcement actions against hedge funds and new incentives for whistleblower have created an increased risk environment for hedge fund managers.

This course will provide an overview of the current and proposed rules related to the above and other areas involved in operating a hedge fund. Faculty will discuss how to avoid problems in the enforcement environment and provide best practices for protecting hedge fund advisers from liability. The registration process, requirements applicable to registered advisers, and operating issues involving hedge funds will be examined. Finally, top practitioners and regulators will discuss their views on hedge fund issues.

Although this program is intended for professionals in the hedge fund industry as well as experienced lawyers who practice in hedge funds, lawyers who are interested in developing hedge funds expertise will also benefit.
