Mayer Brown Legal Update

Recent regulatory changes caused by amendments to the Commodity Exchange Act of 1936 by the Dodd-Frank Act may force family offices that have created any pooled investment vehicle falling within the definition of a “commodity pool” to consider whether or not they are required to register, or file a notice for exemption from registration, as a commodity pool operator (“CPO”).
