SEC Issues Investor Bulletin

October 3, 2012

The SEC today issued an investor bulletin warning investors to rigorously evaluate a hedge fund investment before making one. The SEC’s investor bulletin on hedge funds was prepared by the Office of Investor Education and Advocacy. It recommends that investors understand a hedge fund’s investment strategy and its use of leverage and speculative techniques before making the investment. It also explains the need to evaluate a hedge fund manager’s potential conflicts of interest and take other steps to research those managing the fund.
