SEC Adopts Rules For Private Fund Reporting
On October 26, 2011, the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) adopted new rules under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended (the “Advisers Act”), as required by Sections 404 and 406 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank”). The new rules create a new reporting form — Form PF — to be filed quarterly or annually by registered investment advisers that manage private funds, including hedge funds and private equity funds.
