About

Is Your Hedge Fund Prepared to Withstand the Most Recent Regulatory Scrutiny?

In the aftermath of the SEC's controversial July 2004 vote proposing mandatory registration for the largely unregulated $800 billion hedge fund industry, everyone involved in any way with hedge fund compliance-including in-house counsel, compliance officers and other personnel charged with the task of compliance at hedge funds, prime brokers, and outside attorneys representing hedge funds and their managers-must stay abreast of the important changes and developments in hedge fund regulation.

American Conference Institute has developed this conference on Hedge Funds to address the most pressing concerns of the hedge fund industry. The outstanding faculty of leading attorneys, consultants, and industry players will provide you with their expert insight on:

How the SEC's regulatory reach into the hedge fund industry will impact your business
What steps smaller managers need to take to incorporate formal compliance
Creating effective risk management, monitoring, and management systems
