About the Book

Significant changes have taken place pertaining to banking and finance regulations. In July 2010, Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Act, which outlined sweeping regulatory changes intended to bring greater transparency and oversight to the financial markets. Hedge fund managers were not exempt from increased scrutiny and regulation by state and federal regulatory agencies. Mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act, the SEC adopted new rules in 2011 that eliminated (again) the private adviser exemption, required more hedge fund managers to register with the SEC or a state authority, and required much more detailed and frequent reporting from most managers. The SEC and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) issued thousands of pages of proposals for new rules that directly or indirectly regulate investment advisers and hedge funds, and many have been adopted.

Lawyers at SHARTSIS FRIESE LLP, one of the nation's preeminent law firms in representing hedge fund managers, have once again pooled their expertise with a second edition to the U.S. Regulation of Hedge Funds to address recent developments and evolving regulations. This book is a top-to-bottom review of hedge fund regulation bringing together in a single, convenient volume a discussion of the wide array of securities, tax, ERISA and commodities laws that apply to hedge funds and their investment advisers.

This resource surveys federal securities laws and rules applicable to the organization, capitalization and operations of private U.S. domestic investment partnerships that invest and trade mainly in the public securities markets. An invaluable resource for anyone who manages a hedge fund or counsels hedge funds managers.
