Lance Zinman is a law partner at Katten Muchin Rosenman and head of the firm’s Chicago financial services practice. He regularly advises hedge funds, commodity pools, commodity trading advisors and proprietary trading firms on compliance and regulatory matters. He sat down with John Lothian News Editor-at-Large Doug Ashburn to discuss the SEC rule on private fund solicitation, released July 10, 2013. In the interview, Zinman cuts through the misinformation and explains the key points of the rules. He also explains how the 506 exemption may not be claimed by anyone with a “disqualifying event” and other limitations. He also highlights a few areas in which the rule is unclear or needs to be harmonized with other regulators such as the CFTC.

According to Zinman, it remains to be seen whether this rule will truly usher in a new wave of marketing on behalf of hedge funds and other private funds.
