Private funds include hedge funds, private equity funds, and other types of pooled investment vehicles that are excluded from the definition of investment company by Section 3 c 1 or 3 c 7 of the Investment Company Act. Principal business unit. You also argue that whether a business function carries principal status should not depend on the size of the department in question because principal business functions may be implemented by one individual who may not have a staff.
We believe the rule provides flexibility in determining whether an individual is in charge of a principal business unit, division, or function as described in rule 3c-5 a 3. While not all business units, divisions, or functions are necessarily principal, it is possible that several business units, divisions, or functions could each be a principal unit, division, or function depending on the facts and circumstances.
Moreover, a business unit, division, or function need not be part of the investment activities of a Covered Fund in order to be considered principal, nor is the size of the investment manager or a particular department determinative as to whether a function should be considered principal.
You describe the following circumstances as those under which an investment manager could deem the IT department as a principal unit: i an investment manager that employs one or more technologically driven trading models, whose IT professionals are charged with building the models and systems that translate certain quantitative signals into trade orders, and ii an investment manager that employs technology professionals to build performance and risk monitoring systems that interact with the investment program.
You further state that the investor relations department could be a principal business unit at an investment manager that relies on investor relations personnel to conduct substantive portfolio reviews with investors and to respond to substantive due-diligence inquiries from institutional investors and consultants. While the ultimate determination of whether any business unit, division, or function should be deemed principal is a factual determination that must be made on a case-by-case basis, we believe that an investment manager could determine that its IT and investor relations departments are principal business units, divisions, or functions under the circumstances described above and, accordingly, the individual in charge of each such department could be a knowledgeable employee.
You argue that this demonstrates a focus on function over title and that an employee should meet the standard in the rule if he or she has the power to make, and does make, policy on behalf of the investment manager, the Covered Fund, or an Affiliated Management Person. You argue that employees can meet this standard either individually or as members of a committee or group.
The definition of executive officer in the rule encompasses any officer who performs a policy-making function or any other person who performs similar policy-making functions on behalf of an investment manager. The rule does not require policy-making individuals to have a specific title and includes all employees that have the power to make, and do make, policy on behalf of the investment manager, Covered Fund, or an Affiliated Management Person of the Covered Fund.
We do not believe that individuals who merely observe committee proceedings or merely provide information or analysis to the decision-makers of a committee or group would be engaged in making policy and, therefore, such individuals generally would not be executive officers under the rule. Employees who participate in investment activities.
In previous guidance, the staff has stated that whether an employee was participating in investment activities is a factual determination that must be made on a case-by-case basis.
Accordingly, we believe that such a research analyst could be a knowledgeable employee under rule 3c-5 a 4 ii. You then argue that the individuals in the following factual scenarios should be considered Participating Employees because they are specific examples of employees who participate in investment activities for purposes of rule 3c-5 a 4 iiprovided they regularly perform such functions or duties and have been doing so for at least 12 months:.
While the ultimate determination of whether an individual participates in the investment decisions of a Covered Fund is a factual determination that must be made on a case-by-case basis, we believe that individuals described above could be considered Participating Employees if they regularly perform such functions or duties and have been doing so for at least 12 months. Treatment of separate accounts.
Rule 3c-5 a 4 ii includes certain employees who participate in the investment activity of not only the Covered Fund, but also other Covered Funds, or investment companies managed by an Affiliated Management Person of the Covered Fund. The staff previously stated that rule 3c-5 is premised on the belief that certain persons, because of their financial knowledge and sophistication and their relationship with a Covered Fund, do not need the protection of the Investment Company Act.
We believe that an employee of an Affiliated Management Person who participates in the activities of Covered Separate Accounts or a portfolio or portion thereof of such a Covered Separate Account is also likely to be as financially knowledgeable and sophisticated as an employee who participates in the investment activities of a Covered Fund or investment company.
Accordingly, we would not recommend enforcement action to the Commission under Section 7 of the Investment Company Act against a Covered Fund if it treated an employee as a knowledgeable employee under Rule 3 c -5 a 4 iinotwithstanding the fact that the employee participates in the investment activities of Covered Separate Accounts or a portfolio or portion thereof of a Covered Separate Accountrather than in the investment activities of a Covered Fund or an investment company.
Employees of related advisers in control relationships. The staff previously stated that determining whether an Affiliated Management Person includes each affiliated entity of a Covered Fund that participates in investment activities of the investment management company depends on the relevant facts and circumstances.
In describing the facts and circumstances under which an affiliated entity of the entity managing a Covered Fund may be considered an Affiliated Management Person of the Covered Fund, the staff highlighted the ability of an employee of an affiliated entity to have significant access to information about the Covered Fund. Accordingly, we agree that if a filing adviser and its relying adviser s collectively conduct a single advisory business as described in the Relying Adviser Letter, then each of the filing adviser and relying adviser s may be an Affiliated Management Person of a Covered Fund.
As a result, knowledgeable employees of a filing adviser or any of its relying advisers may be treated as a knowledgeable employee with respect to any Covered Fund managed by the filing adviser or its relying advisers, provided that the employees meet the other conditions of the rule.
Based on the facts and circumstances relevant to a particular investment manager, other employees may qualify as knowledgeable employees for purposes of the rule, and we are not expressing a view on employees outside the scope of those discussed in this letter.Mikki Donaldson.

If you've been watching the never-ending cry-fest that is this season of This Is Usyou probably know that the post-Super Bowl ep is going to be a doozy for the ages.
Last week, we finally got some insight into what started the fire that burned down the Pearson's Pittsburgh home we're looking at you, old tricky slow cooker and we got a glimpse as the devastating flames engulfed what they worked so hard for. The promo for the next installment promises "all our questions will be answered," which can only mean one thing: that Super Bowl Sunday was Jack's last. Now we'll finally learn more about the entire tragic incident.
Let the blubbering commence, America. Creator Dan Fogelman recently spoke to Varietyteasing the heartbreaking TV event the show has been leading up to. Speaking about each of the Pearson kids' relationship with grief over their father's passing, he revealed.
Milo Ventimiglia has also admitted that Season 2, Episode 14, aptly titled "Super Bowl Sunday," will be "an absolute soul-crushing event. Perhaps Tuesday's chapter of This Is Us will be an emotional palate cleanser? We can only hope to get a break from the echoing somber situations, but that probably won't be the case given the series' history. Even when this show isn't sad, it's somehow sad. Just knowing that Jack didn't make it makes those sweet moments with his family that much harder to watch.
The Feb. Oh, who are we kidding? If they cue the Van Morrison and show footage of this family in happier times, we are sure to be gutted.

Human Trafficking Awareness.If you are older than 35, you may recall the early days of the space program. I remember the early spacecraft launch with John Glenn. One of the most exciting and tense moments of his return to earth was his reentry to the earth's atmosphere. I recall the diagram on television of the heat shield on the capsule that had to withstand incredible temperatures to avoid complete destruction. There was a blackout period for several minutes in which mission control had no radio contact.
He was in the "black hole. Either he would make it through, or the spacecraft would burn up in the atmosphere. There were several minutes of silence that seemed like an eternity. Then, mission control shouted with joy when they reestablished contact with the spacecraft. It was a time of rejoicing. Have you ever had a time when you were in a spiritual black hole in your life?
I have. The pressure was unbearable. No sense of God's presence. No sense of anything going on around me. God was about as far away as the man in the moon - at least from my perspective. I think every Christian who is called to make a significant difference in his world experiences times like these. These are the times when we question the reality of God, the love of God, the personal care of God. And He demonstrates to us that He was there all the time. These are "faith experiences" that God does in every person who is called to a higher level of relationship with Him.
These times are needful in order to know that we have the "heat shield" that can withstand the incredible heat that comes when we follow Him with a whole heart - a heart that is radical in a commitment to fully follow His ways. Elisha had that spirit. He slaughtered his 12 oxen and burned his plowing equipment so that he would not have the opportunity to return to anything if God didn't come through see 1 Kings The apostle Paul asked God to remove the heat from his own life one time.
God's answer was not what he wanted to hear. But He said to me, My grace My favor and loving-kindness and mercy is enough for you [sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully]; for My strength and power are made perfect fulfilled and completed and show themselves most effective in [your] weakness.
Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ the Messiah may rest yes, may pitch a tent over and dwell upon me! How's your heat shield today? Can it withstand the heat that would want to burn up everything in your life not based in Him? Christ said, "My grace is sufficient. Let His grace be your shield today.
