WASHINGTON (HedgeWorld.com)–The director of the division of investment management for the Securities and Exchange Commission, Paul F. Roye, will address a Managed Funds Association seminar in New York on Jan. 12.
This is the first in a series of sound-practices seminars the MFA has planned in order to educate its members on the new SEC regulations.
“MFA is planning the industry’s most thorough examination of the new [registration] rule and the vital business practices necessary for hedge fund managers to move smoothly and efficiently through the registration process and be fully compliant by Feb. 1, 2006,” said MFA President John G. Gaine in a statement.
Mr. Gaine added that the MFA was delighted to host Mr. Roye, and was pleased to announce “a faculty of preeminent industry practitioners,” within four panels.
The first panel, led by Paul Roth, founder of Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP, New York, will offer “a walk through the rule itself.”
