The aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis has heralded substantially increased regulation in the United States that impacts on funds of hedge funds (FoHFs). This chapter weighs up the pros and cons of this shifting regulation landscape, and examines the impact of key regulation such as the Dodd–Frank Act on funds and fund volumes. We also discuss potential flow-on effects of the European Alternate Investment Fund Managers directive on the US FoHFs industry.
