Pillsbury meets with the CA Department of Corporations

On August 30, 2012, Ildi Duckor and Michael Wu, members of Pillsbury’s Investment Funds and Investment Management practice, met with executives and staff of the California Department of Corporations at the Department’s invitation.  The purpose of the meeting was to provide the Department’s investment adviser and broker dealer divisions (live in San Francisco and via teleconference in the Sacramento and Los Angeles offices) with a broad overview of the hedge fund industry.  “We hope that a better understanding of the industry will help balance hedge fund managers’ business needs with the regulators’ need for investor and market protection, and will streamline both the adviser registration and the examination process” said Ildi Duckor.  The Investment Funds and Investment Management team will continue to cooperate with the Department in an effort to provide industry insight with respect to future California regulation of hedge funds and their advisers.
