Financial Services Partner Neil Robson was quoted by HFM Week on how hedge funds are adjusting their policies regarding employee trading in order to keep up with technology and investment trends. Neil noted that UK managers often take a stricter approach as compared to the United States. He stated, "In London, it is widespread for hedge fund managers to prohibit personal trading by their traders and sometimes by all their staff." However, if the firm allows it, they may require pre-clearance of trades. ("Up Close and Personal: How Hedge Funds Monitor Employee Trading," May 14, 2018)
