Enables commodity pool operators (CPO) and commodity trading advisors (CTA) to meet CFTC’s data collection and risk reporting requirements on a single platform


Device Frame

Commodity pool operators (CPO) and commodity trading advisors (CTA) are challenged by the depth and the complexity of the reporting data requirements to comply with the rules mandated by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and the Consumer Protection Act.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) data collection and risk reporting rule requires CPOs and CTAs (registered or required to register) to file Form CPOPQR and Form CTAPR, respectively.


  • Data must be sourced from third parties including administrators, portfolio managers, portfolio companies, and investors, and often resides in disparate systems.

  • Required disclosures include investment strategy information, positions data, types of asset classes held, collateral, counterparty exposures, and risk metrics.

Questions to Consider

  • Do we have a plan to eliminate the manual processes upon which we currently rely for reporting?
  • During audits, can we produce a date/time stamped audit trail of each activity on the system?
  • Are we prepared to satisfy National Futures Association (NFA) reporting format requirements?

  • Have we established a repeatable process to collect data from the required external and internal sources in order to meet reporting deadlines?
  • Are we positioned to handle Form CPO-PQR, Form CTA-PR, and other requirements such as Form PF and AIFMD in a coordinated, efficient manner?
