Compliance Corner Q2‑2020: Regulatory Filings and Other Considerations That Hedge Fund Managers Should Note in the Coming Quarter

During this extraordinary time, fund managers are faced with numerous operational and business continuity challenges to address risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic. The pandemic has demanded a “new normal” of remote human interaction and caused fund managers to take unprecedented measures to ensure the continuity of their operations. Despite those challenges, CCOs must be vigilant that compliance operations, including regulatory filings, continue as orderly and timely as possible. This twelfth installment of the Hedge Fund Law Report’s quarterly compliance update, authored by consultants Anne Wallace, John Mrakovcic and Chris Ray at ACA Compliance Group (ACA), highlights upcoming filing deadlines and reporting requirements that fund managers should be aware of during the second quarter. This article also discusses recent SEC coronavirus-related statements and exam program developments; cybersecurity risks related to the coronavirus; items to consider when enhancing coronavirus-related business continuity efforts and operational resiliency; and E.U. short selling restrictions.
