A Closer Look at the SEC and CFTC’s Latest Form PF Amendments

Updated on: February 22, 2024

In February 2024, The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced significant amendments to Form PF, impacting Private Fund Advisers. These modifications expand the scope of information required, including detailed insights into assets under management, investor transactions, fund performance, and investment strategies. Furthermore, the amendments necessitate separate reporting for master-feeder and parallel fund structures and introduce look-through reporting for trading vehicles.

These new requirements will take effect 12 months after the rule enters into the Federal Register.
