The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Are Regulating Hedge Funds Including Implementing Dodd-Frank and Entering into International Agreements Regarding Hedge Fund Regulations

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are moving forward with regulations of the financial services market including regulation of hedge funds.  This financial services regulation includes international agreements with several governments regarding comprehensive arrangements to improve the oversight of regulated entities, including hedge funds, that operate across national borders. 

The implementation of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act passed in July 2010 has increased regulation of financial companies, including large United States based hedge funds, international hedge funds, and smaller United States state based hedge funds. More specifically, the act requires advisers with private pools of capital exceeding $150 million or more in assets to register with the SEC.  As such, the hedge fund advisers of these hedge funds became subject to all rules which apply to registered advisers by July 21, 2011. Previous exemptions from registration provided under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 no longer apply to most hedge fund advisers.

In addition to large hedge funds based in the United States, international hedge funds with more than 15 US clients and investors, and managing more than $25 million for these clients, also have to register with the SEC.  These international hedge funds will also be regulated by the SEC and subject to SEC rules.

Hedge fund managers based in the United States who have less than $100 million in assets under management are overseen by the state where the manager is domiciled and become subject to state regulation.  These mandatory registrations of hedge fund advisers was supported by the largest hedge fund trade group, the Managed Funds Association (MFA)

Dodd-Frank also required hedge funds to provide information about their trades and portfolios to help regulators fulfill their obligation to monitor and regulate systemic risk. The aim was for this data to be analyzed and shared among regulators – including the newly created Financial Stability Oversight Council – and for the SEC to report to Congress on how the data is being used to protect both investors and market integrity. Under the so-called "Volcker Rule", regulators are also required to implement regulations for banks, their affiliates and holding companies to limit their relationships with hedge funds and also to prohibit these organizations from proprietary trading, and limit their investment in, and sponsorship of hedge funds.

The SEC has entered into comprehensive arrangements called “memoranda of understanding” (“MOU’s”) with about international authorities including the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) as part of long-term strategy to improve the oversight of regulated entities, including hedge funds, that operate across national borders. These arrangements detail procedures and mechanisms by which the SEC and its counterparts can collect and share investigatory information where there are suspicions of a violation of either jurisdiction’s securities laws.

The CFTC has also jumped into the regulatory act by eliminating an exemption from registration under which many hedge funds operate. This action will result in these exempt fund advisers having to register with the CFTC by the end of the year (in addition to the SEC or state registration that they have already done earlier this year). Along with increased oversight by the CFTC, additional disclosures will be required to investors, and employees with significant trading and marketing roles will have to become registered and pass the Series 3 exam.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Are Regulating Certain Types of Entities That Deal With Investment Derivatives

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in consultation with the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Federal Reserve), have recently issued final rules regarding common types of investment derivatives. These new rules were mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act and provide interpretive guidance  on the further definition of the terms "swap dealer" (SD), "security-based swap dealer" (SSD), "major swap participant" (MSP), "major security-based swap participant" (MSSP) (MSP and MSSP jointly, major participant) and "eligible contract participant" (ECP).  These new rules define the types of entities that will be required to register as swap dealers, security-based swap dealers, major swap participants (MSPs) and major security-based swap participants (MSSPs).  These entities will be required to register with the CFTC or the SEC and adhere to a wide variety of new requirements with respect to their derivatives trading, including capital, margin, reporting and business conduct requirements.

In an effort to expose fraud and encourage persons with knowledge of significant fraudulent actions, several new International Whistleblower Employee Protection Laws have been passed including recent rules by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  These laws include new International Securities Fraud, Investment Fraud, Currency Fraud, and Derivatives Fraud Bounty Actions that allow international government officials, financial services professionals, bankers, hedge fund managers, financial analysts, and investors to expose fraud and corruption while the whistleblower's identities remains confidential during the filing of whistleblower actions.  The international whistleblowers can protect their identity and career by working through a whistleblower lawyer.

More specifically, these International Whistleblower Protections allow the international whistleblower to work confidentially through an international whistleblower lawyer to determine if a viable case exists and if a potential recovery can be made.  Therefore the international whistleblower can confidentially blow the whistle on securities fraud, while protecting the whistleblower from potential retaliation.  These protections were designed to help encourage whistleblowers to step forward.
