Cadwalader Releases Lofchie’s Guide to Hedge Fund Regulation; Third Major Volume in On-Line Trilogy on Financial Regulation

July 12, 2013

Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP (Cadwalader), a leading counselor to global financial institutions and corporations, today announced the release of Lofchie’s Guide to Hedge Fund Regulation (the “Hedge Fund Guide”), which will discuss U.S. financial regulation applicable to hedge funds and their advisers.  The guide complements and expands the existing products on the Cadwalader Cabinet, including the Guide to Broker-Dealer Regulation and the Guide to CPO and CTA Regulation, as well as the daily Cadwalader Cabinet News. 

The Hedge Fund Guide discusses all of the  relevant regulatory schemes applicable to hedge funds and their advisers, including insights on the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (the “Advisers Act”), the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “ICA”), the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”), the Securities Act of 1933 (the “Securities Act”) and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) as well as relevant provisions of federal banking law.  The Hedge Fund Guide also provides a discussion of the significant tax code provisions applicable to hedge funds and their managers, as well as a discussion of FATCA.   

Lofchie’s Guide to Hedge Fund Regulation is an indispensable resource for financial services professionals as they encounter an increasingly complex regulatory environment,” remarked W. Christopher White, Chairman of Cadwalader. “The Hedge Fund Guide is yet another example of Cadwalader’s tireless commitment to demystifying convoluted financial services regulations.”

The Hedge Fund Guide joins Cadwalader’s previously published reference tools for lawyers and financial services professionals, the updated Lofchie's Guide to Broker Dealer Regulation and Lofchie’s Guide to CPO-CTA Regulation

The Cadwalader Cabinet hosts all of these guides on-line, so along with tens of thousands of other documents, including status, rules, no-action letters, releases, case law and relevant legislation.  The online format allows readers to readily jump from analysis to source documents as the material is very extensively hyperlinked.
