A bill requiring hedge funds to disclose their holdings more frequently was introduced in Congress on Wednesday, a move that if signed into law would represent a seismic change for the hedge-fund industry. It doesn't come to much of a surprise, as financial institutions have made a huge shift towards being more transparent so why not include hedge funds as well? The outcome of this bill, will allow other investors early insights into the stocks or bonds the manager is looking to purchase, which would likely cause price fluctuations.
