Ontario Regulator Launches Hedge Fund ‘Compliance Review’

Feb 10 2009 | 12:30pm ET

Not wanting to become the Securities and Exchange Commission of the north, the Ontario Securities Commission is cracking down on hedge funds.

Canada’s largest provincial financial regulator launched a review of hedge fund compliance last week, the Financial Post reports. It is seeking information from hedge fund managers about their service providers, portfolio composition and valuation, retail customers and the last year-and-a-half of inflows and outflows. The OSC also wants to know about any exposure that Ontario’s hedge funds might have to Bernard Madoff’s alleged Ponzi scheme.

The regulator has told hedge funds to turn the information over by Feb. 20.
