Industry’s first certificate in hedge fund regulation launched

Wednesday, March 03, 2010
The Hedge Fund College has announced the launch of its Certificate in Hedge Fund Regulation, the first regulatory certification in the hedge fund industry. The Certificate in Hedge Fund Regulation provides a broad-based curriculum in hedge fund regulation, delivered online by distance learning. Sponsored by The Hedge Fund Society and its international advisory board of academics and commercial practitioners, the course provides:

• An introduction to hedge funds, their history and the regulatory issues surrounding them.
• A review of regulatory theory.
• An analysis of the regulation of hedge funds, hedge fund managers, hedge fund service providers, hedge fund standards.
• An analysis of current developments in the UK, EU and US.

The eight mandatory modules of the course are supplemented by a regularly updated resource of press articles and video links. Course registration, including the certificate examination, is accessible at www.hedgefundcollege.com.

Thomas Bullman, founder of the Hedge Fund College, said, “Never has it been more important for the hedge fund industry to demonstrate a greater regulatory awareness. Both European and US regulatory proposals will have far-reaching effects. Everybody within the hedge fund industry has an obligation to ensure that they are sufficiently educated on how these new measures will impact them. The Hedge Fund College aims to provide a broad certification that a candidate has demonstrated an understanding of hedge fund regulation and current issues.”
