Kanaan Hedge FoF is a legal fund, managed by Kanaan trust which has a Cat IIA licence with the necessary qualified key individuals to manage Hedge Funds.

Fund Management companies like Kanaan Trust with its key individuals are regulated and required to have the necessary qualifications and experience with a Cat IIA license. The Hedge Funds themselves are presently not regulated by the SA Financial Services Board and these funds do not have to comply with the provisions of the Collective Investments Schemes Control act no 45 of 2002. Because of the complex derivative strategies of long and short selling followed within these funds and which strategies of the various Hedge Funds differ hugely from each other and where NAVs cannot be declared on a daily basis in most cases, like what is required in the case of Collective Investments Schemes (unit trusts), it is almost impossible to have a standard set of rules for these funds by which the FSB can regulate them.

One of the advantages of regulated funds is that unhappy investors can request the ombudsman free of charge to adjudicate differences that there might be between them and the unit trust fund manager, whereas in the case of Hedge Funds they will have to appoint a lawyer to take the necessary action on their behalf.
