On Februrary 10th, the National Futures Association (“NFA”) announced that it was making two changes to its EasyFile system. Both changes relate to the information that is required to be filed by a commodity pool operator (CPO) in respect of annual pool financial statements. In particular, a CPO must now:
1) Complete a Cover Page for all pool financial statements; and
2) Respond to new Line 5, Pool Financial Balance, which requires the CPO to report any amounts owed to the pool by any other funds, including other funds operated by the CPO.
These changes are effective for all outstanding pool financial statements dated after November 29, 2014.
Additional information in respect of each of these changes can be found here.
Good day. Good filing. DR2.
