Third Round of Form PF Amendments Focuses on Granular Hedge Fund Data (Part One of Two)

On February 8, 2024, the SEC and CFTC jointly issued amendments (Amendments) to enhance private fund reporting on Form PF. Key changes effected by the Amendments include enhanced reporting by all advisers required to file Form PF; more granular reporting on hedge funds, including the exposures, positions and borrowings of large hedge funds; and disaggregated reporting on fund structures. This is the third round of amendments to Form PF in the last two years. The Amendments and the adopting release were published in the Federal Register on March 12, 2024; the Amendments will take effect on March 12, 2025.
