Proposed Amendments to Form PF Section 3 - Liquidity Private Funds
Re-numbering and Re-sequencing of questions within Form PF requires that the respondents update their electronic versions of the forms, XML Schema and internal system data cross-references. This is not an inconsequential effort for the Investment Advisors responding to this reporting requirement.
Retain the existing numbering ranges for questions in Sections 3 and 4 of Form PF.
This can be accomplished by merging two related questions in Section 3 thereby completing this section with Question # 64, and keeping Section 4 question numbers intact. The best suited questions to merge are Q52 & Q53 or Q53 & Q54 resulting in a merged question with parts (a) & (b) to complete the sequence of questions in their existing order.
