On February 9, 2012, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) issued final rules eliminating a number of exclusions and exemptions relied on by commodity pool operators and commodity trading advisers and the final rules increase the reporting requirements for these groups. In making these changes, the CFTC declined to provide specific exemptions for family offices. And therefore many family offices will be impacted. This teleconference focuses on examining changes to the rule and helping you comprehend how it impacts the family office community.
