By returning outsiders’ money, Soros Fund Management escapes that rule and the loss of privacy that goes with it.

Now, in another twist in financial history, Mr. Paulson is retaining as an adviser a man some blame for helping feed the housing-market bubble by keeping interest rates so low: former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan.
