New Form PR Quarterly Filing Requirement Now in Effect for CTAs

September 27, 2013

On September 16, 2013, the National Futures Association (NFA) issued a notice on the new quarterly filing requirements for commodity trading advisers (CTAs). Previously, under Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) Regulation 4.27, CTAs were required to file a Form PR only on an annual basis within 45 days of each calendar year end. However, earlier this year, the CFTC approved an NFA proposal to amend NFA Compliance Rule 2-46 to require quarterly reporting on Form PR. The quarterly filing requirement goes into effect for the quarter ending September 30, 2013 with the first filing of the quarterly Form PR due on November 14, 2013.
