Investment Funds Articles
In 2011, the executive legislative and judicial branches of the U.S. government focused their not inconsiderable efforts on the regulatory regime surrounding investment advisers.
Pursuant to final rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission effective July 21, 2011, family offices, foreign private advisers and investment advisers to venture capital funds and to private funds with assets under management of less than $150 million are exempt from registration under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended (the “”visers Act”).
