IOSCO publishes updated systemic risk data requirements for hedge funds

IOSCO has published an updated list of categories of data for the global collection of hedge fund information, which it believes will assist in assessing possible systemic risks arising from the sector.  The data categories were first published in February 2010, with the first IOSCO hedge fund survey in September 2011.

The Task Force on Unregulated Financial Entities has agreed to conduct a second hedge fund survey in September 2012, with responses expected by the end of the year.  In support of this, the task force has reviewed the categories of data used for the first survey and amended the list of data it will collect for the second survey.
