MFA’s Latest Policy Brief Newsletter Now Available

Posted on August 21, 2013

Earlier today, the Managed Funds Association (MFA) released the latest edition of its monthly newsletter, the Policy Brief.  This month’s issue touches on a number of educational and advocacy projects that MFA has worked on over the past month.  Whether it was testifying before a U.S. Senate Committee or rolling out new videos in an educational series, MFA’s work has taken a number of forms to educate the public about our industry as the voice of the global alternative investment industry.

Stories included in the August Policy Brief include:

  • MFA’s testimony before the Senate Agriculture Committee on the reauthorization of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission.
  • A new educational presentation focusing on the importance of hedge fund due diligence in the post-JOBS Act climate.
  • MFA and the Alternative Investment Management Association’s joint letter to the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding its proposed Regulation SCI.
  • Brooke Harlow, MFA’s Executive Vice President and Managing Director for Development and Communications, wrote an op-ed in Institutional Investor’s Alpha discussing new points of focus for hedge fund managers in a post-JOBS Act era.
  • MFA’s release of a number of videos covering topics such as short selling, correcting misconceptions about the hedge fund industry, and the future of the industry.
  • A recent report from Cliffwater that found better performing state pensions generally had higher allocations to alternatives.

Read more about these stories in the latest edition of the Policy Brief monthly newsletter.  You can also download and read all of MFA’s previous Policy Briefs by visiting our archive page.  Sign up for the Policy Brief by submitting your e-mail address in the Policy Brief form on the right-hand side of any page on MFA’s website.
