In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Handler Thayer, LLP Family Office Update: CFTC Reinstates Family Office Exception

CHICAGO, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- On November 29, 2012, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (the "CFTC") released a blanket No-Action Letter providing relief from registration as a Commodity Pool Operator ("CPO") to family offices that qualify for the Family Office Exemption created under the Dodd-Frank Act, modifying the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (the "IAA").  This relief stems from the recent CFTC decision to rescind the CPO exemption in the Commodities Exchange Act that most family offices currently rely on to avoid registration.  Without the exemption, family offices investing in mutual funds or hedge funds owning commodities could be required to register as a CPO by December 31, 2012.

While the CFTC noted that family offices are "not operations of the type and nature that warrant regulatory oversight by the CFTC," the new "family office exemption" is not a self-executing exemption.  In order to obtain the relief set forth by the CFTC in the No-Action Letter, a family office is required to:

  1. Retain the Family Office Exemption pursuant to the IAA;
  2. Submit a claim for relief to the CFTC's Division of Swap Dealer and Intermediary Oversight by December 31, 2012, containing the name, address, and phone number of the family office, and the capacity and the name of the pools of commodities owned by the family office (if applicable); and,
  3. Prior to March 31, 2013, confirm its status as a family office and warrant that the family office will notify the CFTC if it no longer meets the definition of a family office pursuant to the IAA.

If you have any questions regarding this No-Action Letter or the family office exemption discussed herein, please contact Handler Thayer, LLP at (312) 641-2100.

The December 2012 issue of Private Asset Management Magazine (PAM) conducted a "Focus on Legal Solutions" roundtable featuring Thomas J. Handler, discussing the impact of tax law and compliance regulations on the private asset management industry.

In TIME Magazine's December 3rd issue, Joel Stein's article, "Sweet Charity," quoted Washington, D.C. Handler Thayer Partner,  Andrew Morton.  "In the 1970s, athletes just did things for the United Way.  Now we live in this whole Facebook, social media, look-at-me kind of world where celebrities think, I can throw a football, so I'm a philanthropist.  No, you're a guy who can throw a football.  There are two types of missions.  You can have a mission to do stuff.  You can also have a mission of raising awareness.  [Philanthropy branding] is what you need to do if you want to have impact now.  Angelina Jolie: refugees.  Bono: AIDS.  George Clooney: Darfur."

The Institute for Private Investors (IPI) is an international association of family offices and ultra-high net worth investors.  IPI featured a summary of Thomas J. Handler's presentation with U.S. Trust to IPI, "The Dodd-Frank Act: Implications for Family Offices,"  in its 2012 Report which "highlights the best insights and thinking from the past 12 months."
