"The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) recently adopted amendments to its regulations governing the registration of commodity pool operators (CPOs) and commodity trading advisors (CTAs) and the compliance and reporting obligations that accompany registration. As a result of these amendments, some funds that engage in commodity interest transactions (i.e., futures, options and swaps), but were previously excluded or exempt from CFTC regulation, and their advisers may become subject to the CFTC's jurisdiction. The CFTC also proposed regulations that are intended to harmonize certain CPO and CTA compliance requirements with SEC regulations, which will likely ease compliance burdens for dual SEC/CFTC registrants.
