Q&A: CIMA Head Voices Concerns Over ‘Retailization’ Of Hedge Funds

Sep 8 2006 | 12:00am ET

Much has been written about whether or not U.S. hedge funds should be regulated, but U.S. regulators aren’t the only ones with oversight responsibilities. The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority currently regulates just over 7,900 funds, and approximately 90% of them are classified as hedge funds, with many of these managers based in the U.S. Gary Linford, head of the Investments and Securities Division of CIMA, explains to FINalternatives how the Caymans regulates hedge funds and why he is concerned about ‘retailization’ of private investment vehicles.

What do you think of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s hedge fund registration rule being overturned? Do you think U.S. legislators should push for greater regulation?
