NFA Announces Registration Webinar for Previously Exempt 4.13(a)(4) Commodity Pool Operators


On February 24, 2012, the CFTC issued final rules to rescind an exemption from CPO registration for certain qualifying commodity pools under CFTC Rule 4.13(a)(4).

Operators of many pools that previously qualified for the 4.13(a)(4) CPO exemption, including the Cayman-organized subsidiaries of mutual funds, have until December 31, 2012 (to be effective January 1, 2013), to register with the CFTC and become members of the NFA.

To assist with the CPO registration process, the NFA will hold a webinar on Wednesday, August 15, at 3:00 PM EDT. NFA staff members will explain who has to register, provide a walkthrough of the registration process and give a brief overview of a CPO’s regulatory requirements. Participants will be able to submit questions throughout the program. While the webinar is free, registration will be required (see below).
