Form PF Background
Private funds and registered investment advisers (RIA) are burdened by the depth and the complexity of the reporting data requirements to comply with the rules mandated by Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and the Consumer Protection Act.
Enforced by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Investment Advisors Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC); Form PF and CPO-PQR take fund advisors disclosure far beyond Form ADV. As a result, fund managers must pull together and aggregate large amount of data that is potentially stored across several systems and multiple locations to successfully keep track of systemic risk.
With the new regulatory initiatives, whether it’s Form PF, CPO-PQR, Form SEC 13F or AIFMD, asset managers are faced with requirements for transparency, dynamic data, ad-hoc reporting capabilities for both print and on-line reporting.
