JP Bruynes Discusses New Hedge Fund Regulations in HFMWeek

JP Bruynes, a partner in Akin Gump’s investment funds practice, is quoted in an HFMWeek article that previews some key themes for the hedge fund industry in the coming year.

Addressing the issue of regulation in “2013 Preview,” Bruynes notes that people are just starting “to familiarise themselves with a host of new compliance requirements under the [Commodity Futures Trading Commission].” Among them are rules for newly registered hedge funds with more than $1.5 billion under management. European regulators will also be imposing their own cross-border rules in the coming year.
