In January, the SEC proposed the implementation of new measures to allow for greater scrutiny into private equity funds and some hedge funds by increasing the frequency of the submission of confidential information using Form PF. This change aims to close gaps and increase transparency, starting with reporting departures of funds’ general partners, reporting extraordinary investment losses, and reduce reporting thresholds.
In a recent article published in Hedgeweek, I explained what these changes mean and how they will affect what and when firms report to regulators. One key takeaway: To meet these new requirements, managers must implement technologies that arm them with a greater ability to measure and report on their holdings.
With constant market volatility, managers who do not adopt a modern technology solution will be unable to spot serious financial risks in a timely manner. This will make it impossible to meet the SEC’s new regulatory requirements, several of which mandate same-day reporting.
