NFA Regulations and Capital Raising on Agenda
The San Francisco Futures Professionals Group (LinkedIn Group) will be meeting next week to discuss the most recent NFA Regulatory Seminar. Bart Mallon of Cole-Frieman & Mallon LLP will be providing an overview of the major regulatory items discussed at the seminar including the new NFA rule on social media, issues with disclosure documents and performance reporting, and perhaps most, importantly, how to prepare for and deal with an NFA audit.
In addition to Mr. Mallon’s discussion, Bill Grayson has offered to join the group to discuss strategy and capital raising for emerging managers.
The meeting will take place at Mr. Mallon’s office suite (1 Ferry Building, Suite 255) on March 16th at 4pm. After the discussion the futures professionals group will move to the Slanted Door for continued discussion, drinks and networking.
All bay area futures professionals are invited to attend (please RSVP). Additionally, Cole-Frieman & Mallon LLP would like to welcome any bay area forex professionals to attend. Many forex professionals will need to become NFA members after the CFTC’s proposed forex registration rules are adopted and we recommend that such forex professionals begin preparing for registration. All bay area forex professionals are encouraged to join the San Francisco Forex Professionals LinkedIn group as well.
