MFA Statement on SEC Proposed Amendments to Form PF

Washington, DC – Managed Funds Association President and CEO Bryan Corbett today issued the following statement in response to the SEC’s proposed amendments to Form PF:

“Alternative asset managers currently provide extensive information to regulators. The SEC should focus on better utilizing this information rather than imposing new burdens on fund managers that are of dubious utility. The proposal will impair the ability of managers to deliver for their investors, including pensions, foundations, and endowments. It will also restrict the ability of new and emerging managers to enter the market and serve investors.”
