The Department of Treasury’s Regulatory Reform Proposals:  An Analysis of the Impact on Private Fund Managers

By: Terrance J. O’Malley, Jessica Forbes

The Department of Treasury recently issued a white paper on financial regulatory reform.  The white paper includes a series of proposed reforms, including a requirement that advisers to hedge funds, private equity funds and venture capital funds register with the SEC and that they report information about the funds they manage so that regulators can assess the systemic risk the funds may pose individually or collectively.  This client alert reviews these registration and reporting proposals, as well as other proposals that may impact advisers to private funds.
