CP 174 Hedge funds - Improving disclosure - Further consultation

Released 23 February 2012. Comments closed 19 April 2012. Draft RG included in CP.

This consultation paper follows Consultation Paper 147 Hedge funds: Improving disclosure for retail investors (CP 147) and seeks further feedback on our proposals to improve disclosure for hedge funds.

It includes a draft regulatory guide that sets out our proposed benchmarks and disclosure principles to help investors better understand and assess such investments.

In seeking to improve disclosure, ASIC aims to ensure that investors and their advisers have the information they need to make an informed investment decision. However, this should not be regarded as an indication that we consider these products to be suitable for all or most retail investors.
