12:00 PM - 1:00 PM Central Standard Time

On February 9, the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) announced the adoption of final rules amending CFTC Regulation 4.5, the exclusion from registration as a commodity pool operator that most mutual funds rely on. For registered investment companies and their investment advisers, this development has spawned many interpretative, operational and compliance issues that must be identified, resolved and implemented on or before the effective date.

Attorneys Deborah Bielicke Eades and Joseph M. Mannon will address these important issues as they apply to registered funds:

  • Assessing Key Definitions
  • Developing an Action Plan
  • Establishing Ongoing Testing

Please join us for a 60-minute presentation, including 15 minutes of audience Q&A.

Login information and presentation materials will be provided prior to the webinar. Please direct all questions to Lisa Kurth at or +1 (312) 609 4162.

This is a complimentary program.
