Will regulation of the hedge funds and private equity firms make the Bank Asset Plan Fail?


It has been suggested that hedge funds and private equity firms

will be reluctant partners in Treasury’s public-private investment funds

because Treasury Secretary Geithner and SEC Chairman Schapiro have both asked that new systemic regulations be adopted to manage these industries. 

 

I would think the result of these regulations will be to require senior officers in these firms to certify that they have robust AML and fraud prevention programs.  After the Madoff Ponzi scheme, the UBS case and other recent examples of greed, I would think that these regulations would be welcomed by both industries.

 

What do you think?  I encourage your comments
