Managers Shrug Off Worries Over HF Registration

Nov 18 2005 | 8:44pm ET

Industry insiders at the Fourth Annual Fund-of-Funds forum in New York this week spoke about the new regulations, and the general consensus was that the laws will neither prevent fraud nor will they harm the hedge fund industry.

"We don't look to the SEC to do our due diligence," chuckled Patrick Egan, president and chief executive of Pennsylvania-based fund-of-funds firm Attalus Capital, speaking on a panel at the conference.
