With systemic risk and hedge funds in mind, the International Organization of Securities Commissions has released details of a template for the global collection of hedge fund information which it believes will assist in assessing possible systemic risks arising in this sector.

Note that it is proposed that the first data gathering exercise could be carried out as early as September this year.
