Should hedge funds be regulated?  Is regulation preferable to disclosure?  Did hedge funds cause the Credit Crisis? Do we really understand hedge funds?

Hedge funds face multiple calls for their regulation. The G20 has called for hedge fund regulation. IOSCO is due to publish the findings of its Consultation Report on Hedge Funds Oversight. The EC has published a draft Directive on Alternative Investment Fund Managers. The US Congress and other legislatures are considering equivalent proposals. Regulators such as the FSA, the AMF, the SEC and the SFC are considering proposals to change the regulatory structure within which AI vehicles and their managers and service providers operate.  Yet, few have made out the case to regulate hedge funds as a means to emerge from the Credit Crisis, or otherwise. How many truly understand how hedge funds work, fund themselves, trade or operate?

Hedge Fund Regulation explores the legislative, legal, regulatory and compliance developments affecting hedge funds. An expert panel will delve into related matters such as the Credit Crisis and the involvement in this of hedge funds and prime brokers. Representatives from major regulatory and political authorities such as SEC and FSA, as well as IOSCO, HM Treasury and the EU will engage in an open dialogue on this critical and timely topic. Understand how this will impact your business and strategy.

Hedge Fund Regulation will also explore critical, related matters such as investigations and enforcement actions.
