NFA to Require CPOs to Identify Registered Investment Companies


The National Futures Association (NFA) has notified its members that it will require each member of the NFA that is registered as a commodity pool operator (CPO) and operates one or more commodity pools that are also registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as investment companies under the Investment Company Act of 1940 to identify such pools through the NFA’s annual CPO questionnaire. The NFA stated that this information will help the NFA identify the pools that are not required to comply with certain NFA rules and various provisions of Part 4 of the CFTC’s regulations due to their registration as investment companies.

More information on the NFA’s notice can be found here.
