The Managed Funds Association isnt just a group representing the hedge fund industry its also a media watchdog.
In conjunction with its advocacy efforts in Washington and abroad, Managed Funds Association (MFA) is working to reshape the medias distortions and the publics misperceptions about the hedge fund industry, according to the organizations revamped website, www.managedfunds.org.
John G. Gaine, MFA president, said in a statement that he believes the hedge fund industry is compliant, rather than secretive bound by Securities and Exchange Commission regulations to remain mum. He said the MFA is the central repository of information for the media. Consequently, we encourage an open dialogue with the media and hope to foster longstanding relationships with all journalists in order to present accurate information and promote balanced coverage.
