As part of its effort to “get ahead of the curve,” a major hedge fund group has issued a new set of best practices guidelines for the industry.
The Managed Funds Association, updating its guidelines for the first time in two years, calls on hedge funds to set up valuation committees and utilize outside valuation experts to ensure proper, independent valuing of hedge fund assets.
