Staff of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight clarified certain Frequently Asked Questions recently issued by the Division regarding Form CPO-PQR (click here to access the relevant FAQ). CPOs are required to file this form on a quarterly basis with the National Futures Association if they have $1.5 billion in aggregated assets under management as of the close of business on any day during the quarter, or annually if otherwise (NFA Form PQR must be filed by CPOs of all sizes on a quarterly basis; click here for details). The CFTC form requires disclosure of specified information regarding the CPO and each of its pools. Among other things, the FAQ indicated that parallel managed accounts must be aggregated with the pool with the largest assets under management to which the parallel accounts relate. However, staff agreed to defer this requirement until the reporting period ending December 31, 2016. The staff's clarification is dated February 25, 2016.
