Hedge Fund Regulation Front and Center at 2007 Milken Institute Global Conference

With the record level of assets under management, the power to influence markets and effect corporate change, and the freedom to speculate on anything from interest rates to weather, hedge funds are important for the liquidity and efficiency of financial markets. With such power, however, who is keeping an eye on behalf of the public and investors? With a change in Congress and an upcoming presidential election, will hedge-fund regulation become an issue in 2007? What are the likely scenarios?

Los Angeles, CA, April 21, 2007 --( How will the recent change in Congressional power, the sharpening debate in Europe about highly leveraged financial institutions, and the upcoming 2008 presidential elections affect the regulatory outlook for the hedge fund industry? A panel of industry experts assembled by Public Insight, the leading independent investment research firm specializing in regulatory risk analysis and due diligence, will debate the political and regulatory changes that could profoundly impact this powerful, multi-billion dollar industry at the Milken Institute’s 10th annual Global Conference to be held in Los Angeles later this month.

Industry analysts generally accept that regulatory changes are on the horizon – and hedge funds need to prepare themselves for a recalibrated playing field. “In the coming months, hedge funds would be well advised to work more collaboratively and transparently with G8 financial bureaucrats to ensure their newly sanctioned regulatory ‘vigilance’ does not turn into vigilantism” said Jonathan Spalter, Chairman and CEO of Public Insight, and moderator of the conference panel titled Hedge Funds: The Last Unregulated Frontier - But For How Long?

This is the second year that Public Insight has sponsored the Global Conference, and is chairing this particular panel with a sincere belief that funds need to prepare to analyze the effects of regulatory changes on the hedge fund industry. Panel speakers include Marc Lasry, Founder and Managing Partner, Avenue Capital Group; Jon Lukomnik, Managing Partner, Sinclair Capital LLC; Robert Matza, Partner and President, GoldenTree Asset Management LP; Paul Roth, Partner, Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP.

Public Insight provides institutional investors and asset managers a cost effective and reliable “one-stop” solution for their regulatory and public policy due diligence, research, and risk management needs through the firm’s nationally-recognized proprietary network of regulatory experts, lawyers, economists, and lobbyists. The Public Insight Research Network covers all regulated sectors in each of the fifty United States, all key municipalities, and Washington, D.C., providing the legislative and regulatory knowledge needed to improve better investment decision-making for its clients, whose assets under management total well over US$300 billion.
