Richard A. Tulli recently contributed to an article titled "Are Hedge Fund Managers Required to Disclose the Existence or Outcome of Regulatory Examinations to Current or Potential Investors?" in The Hedge Fund Law Report.
Mr. Tulli comments, "...governing documents or the investment management agreement of a hedge fund typically do not require the hedge fund adviser – which may be the general partner – to disclose any regulatory examination or deficiency letter to investors. It is not unusual, however, for the adviser to be contractually obligated to disclose any SEC investigation that is not a regular or periodic examination and any SEC proceeding involving the adviser."
