Panel members at the Bloomberg Markets Hedge Fund Summit believe that the regularly changes being proposed in the US are more attractive to hedge fund and private equity managers than those being initiated in Europe. The anticipated regulatory overhaul in Europe would include restrictions on hedge fund bonuses and debt usage. These rules would also apply to any United States-based hedge funds marketing to European investors.

While the panel agrees that more regulation and transparency is needed, they cautioned that exclusively onerous regulations may have unintended consequence.
