The Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) new regulatory filing for registered investment advisers, Form PF, is designed to help the Financial Stability Oversight Council assess systemic risk in the financial system. The rule requires advisers registered with the SEC that advise one or more private funds and have at least $150 million in assets under management to file Form PF. Larger advisers are required to complete more detailed reporting.
This capability will allow advisers to receive client level Form PF data, enabling them to complete the Form PF data compilation and filing with their own systems. Clients will have the option of working with a selected third-party to receive the full end-to-end-solution. Clients using this offering will be able to manage their reporting workflow and automate Form PF processes in a scalable and auditable format.
The product offers a range of options for Form PF solutions support, including investor fund level information, according to Stephanie Miller, global head of alternative investment services for J.P. Morgan Worldwide Securities Services.
