On October 31, pursuant to Sections 404 and 406 of the Dodd-Frank Act, the CFTC adopted a new rule requiring certain advisers to private funds that are dually registered with the CFTC and the SEC to report information to the SEC on a new Form PF for use by the Financial Stability Oversight Council to monitor risks to the U.S. financial system.   The SEC approved the joint rule on October 26.  Most private fund advisers will be required to begin filing Form PF following the end of their first fiscal year or fiscal quarter ending on or after December 15, 2012, depending upon the type and amount of AUM.  However, certain large reporting advisers will be required to file Form PF following their first fiscal year or fiscal quarter after December 15, 2012.  CFTC Release.
