Form PF (private fund), is a US regulatory requirement requiring a
private, confidential filing by SEC-registered investment advisers on a
quarterly or annual basis. Designed to assist the Financial Stability
Oversight Council in monitoring systemic risk, it requires portfolio,
performance and risk data. The requirements become effective on June
29, 2012. GlobeOp is the first administrator to offer an end-to-end
reporting support service to clients and as a standalone service.
GlobeOp can minimize the operational burden of reporting by leveraging
existing, integrated fund data infrastructures - including the general
ledger, risk and pricing engines. Using electronic formatting, GlobeOp
gathers data and produces Form PF reports for clients to review,
authorize and submit. As all funds must be included in a single report,
GlobeOp will also aggregate data from client sources or other
administrators. Fund management companies retain ownership of fund data
and SEC filing responsibility.
