Related Topics

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has drafted a new rule aimed at increasing the amount of leverage information disclosed by hedge and other private funds, according to a report by Reuters.

The report cites an unnamed source as revealing that the new rule would increase the level of information on leverage provided by funds as part of their confidential Form-PF disclosures. The proposed change would also apply to fund advisors operating as commodity traders and investors under Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) rules.

The report says the proposed change is part of a broader effort by the SEC to boost transparency of the private fund industry, and comes on the heels of draft rule in January that boosted other Form PF disclosures.
