The SEC and CFTC Have Expanded Definitions of Original Information to Include Independent Analysis
Hedge Fund Manager, Money Managers, and Financial Analysts are a select group of professionals that often have original information from their own independent analysis of securities violations. Because of the financial and investment expertise, the SEC has decided to offer large financial rewards to hedge fund managers, financial analysts, and other financial services professionals that properly identify and expose financial fraud, investment fraud, and securities fraud. Under the SEC Whistleblower Reward Program new rules have expanded the definition of original information to encourage hedge fund managers, financial analysts, and money managers to become whistleblowers. The new law and SEC rules include increased economic incentives and protections that are meant to encourage hedge fund managers, financial analysts, and money managers to blow the whistle on significant fraud schemes.
The definition of "original information" in the SEC Whistleblower Reward Program, has been expanded from prior whistleblower reward laws to include "independent analysis". This new expanded definition includes a whistleblower’s independent analysis or own examination and evaluation of publicly available information, if and only if that whistleblower's examination, evaluation, and analysis is determined by the SEC to provide vital assistance to the SEC staff in understanding and identifying complex fraud schemes and violations of securities law.

As such, for the protection of high end financial analyst whistleblowers, money manager whistleblowers, and investors, it may be best to report the fraud through a SEC Whistleblower Reward Program Lawyer that can protect the identity of the whistleblower until it can be determined what type of an award may be offered.

Hedge Fund Manager Whistleblower Lawyer Helps Anonymous Whistleblowers Seek Financial Rewards
Under the SEC Whistleblower Program, Whistleblowers entitled to recovery ranging from 10 to 30% of monetary sanctions. These monetary sanctions are much more far reaching than prior Insider Trading Awards and include not only SEC penalties, but also disgorgements. These disgorgements can be the largest part of the potential recovery and greatly increase the economic incentive for the potential whistleblower.
A financial disgorgement is a repayment of ill-gotten gains that is imposed on wrong-doers by the courts. Thus, funds that were received through illegal or unethical business transactions are disgorged, or paid back, with interest to those affected by the action. Disgorgement is a remedial civil action, rather than a punitive civil action. As applied to the SEC violations, individuals or companies that violate SEC regulations are typically required to pay both civil money penalties and disgorgement. Civil money penalties are punitive, while disgorgement is about paying back profits made from those actions that violated the SEC's regulations. In some instances, disgorgement payments are not only demanded of those who violate securities regulations. Anyone profiting from illegal or unethical activities may be civilly required to disgorge their profits.

Hedge Fund Manager Whistleblower Lawyer Handles Anonymous Whistleblower Reward Cases Through the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act Which Required Registration of Hedge Fund Advisors with the SEC and States
The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act passed in July 2010 increased regulation of financial companies, including hedge funds. The act requires advisers with private pools of capital exceeding $150 million or more in assets to register with the SEC. As investment advisers, these hedge fund advisers become subject to all rules which apply to registered advisers by July 21, 2011. Previous exemptions from registration provided under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 no longer apply to most hedge fund advisers. Hedge fund managers who have less than $100 million in assets under management are overseen by the state where the manager is domiciled and become subject to state regulation. In addition to US hedge funds, many overseas funds with more than 15 US clients and investors, and managing more than $25 million for these clients, also have to register with the SEC. Mandatory registration of hedge fund advisers was supported by the largest hedge fund trade group, the Managed Funds Association (MFA), which announced its support for registration in testimony to a US congressional committee on May 7, 2009.
Dodd-Frank also required hedge funds to provide information about their trades and portfolios to help regulators fulfill their obligation to monitor and regulate systemic risk. The aim was for this data to be analyzed and shared among regulators – including the newly created Financial Stability Oversight Council – and for the SEC to report to Congress on how the data is being used to protect both investors and market integrity. Under the so-called "Volcker Rule", regulators are also required to implement regulations for banks, their affiliates and holding companies to limit their relationships with hedge funds and also to prohibit these organizations from proprietary trading, and limit their investment in, and sponsorship of hedge funds

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Commodities Future Trading Commission (CFTC) both have anonymous whistleblower programs. These anonymous whistleblower programs were implemented under Section 922 of the Dodd-Frank Act, and are primarily intended to reward individuals who act early to expose violations.

To be considered for an award, an anonymous whistleblower must voluntarily provide original information that leads to a successful enforcement action that results in monetary sanctions totaling more than $1 million. In many situations that scheme must be much larger than $1 million.

By creating whistleblower bounties for investors and financial services professionals with specific information of financial fraud, billions have already been recovered.
