The Hedge Fund Law Report (HFLR) is the definitive source of actionable intelligence on hedge fund law and regulation. Each week, the HFLR brings subscribers incisive analysis of key developments on topics including compliance, derivatives, enforcement, case law, marketing, regulation, rulemaking, taxation and more. For more than a decade, the HFLR has been helping to enhance the scope, relevance and quality of information available to GCs, CCOs, COOs, law firm attorneys and service providers that directly affect the profit and loss of investment managers.
By maintaining a regular dialogue with key industry decision makers, policy makers and practitioners, the HFLR’s team of attorneys produces proprietary analysis that is not available anywhere else. Ultimately, the HFLR’s analytical articles provide insights subscribers need to revise their practices, policies and procedures to mitigate legal, operational and regulatory risk.
In addition to articles produced through the HFLR team’s grass-roots research, the team also employs a collaborative editorial process that enables leading lawyers, compliance professionals, regulators and thought leaders in relevant fields to publish contributed articles within the HFLR.
Subscribers to the HFLR receive a summary of new proprietary analysis via email alert every other Thursday morning. In addition, subscribers have access to the HFLR’s full database of analysis across 200 topics and 4,000+ analytical articles, as well as its archive of webinars on industry topics. The HFLR database employs advanced searchability and filtering to enable subscribers to locate matters that are most relevant to them.
The HFLR is part of the Law Report Group, an ION Company.
