The book aims to aid hedge fund managers, in-house counsel and other industry participants in ensuring that they are well versed in the changes in the laws and regulatory regimes and assist them in achieving high standards of compliance and governance, and it does this with flying colours. Each chapter is clearly the work of someone who is well-versed not only in the legal requirements but also their practical application. The book is clearly and concisely written in a readable, user-friendly style that avoids jargon… No single book could ever hope to cover in detail every issue that will arise in such a complex sector, but this one ensures that the reader is able to identify the ones that matter, establish the key principles and decide whether further advice is needed. It will be a very helpful reference for practitioners and general counsel as well as people who wish to understand what hedge funds are.
