Email and IM Compliance: Have you got mail?

A lot has been discussed and written about the Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC's) proposed rule 203(b)(3)-2 that requires hedge fund advisers to register with the Commission under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. But another SEC proposal requiring hedge funds to archive emails and instant messages for auditing purposes is also on the horizon.

Much is being publicised about the changing regulatory environment in the US-domiciled hedge fund industry. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) will shortly determine whether hedge funds will be required to comply with the rules and regulations adhered to by registered investment advisers, as the 'comment' period set aside for industry participants to air their views pertaining to the proposed 203(b)(3)-2 regulations expired on September 15.
