Proposed Changes to Form ADV

The SEC has released its proposed changes to Form ADV to better deal with private fund registration and the exempt, but reporting required of venture capital funds: Release No. IA-3110

The Securities and Exchange Commission is proposing new rules and rule amendments under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 to implement provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. These rules and rule amendments are designed to give effect to provisions of Title IV of the Dodd-Frank Act that, among other things, increase the statutory threshold for registration by investment advisers with the Commission, require advisers to hedge funds and other private funds to register with the Commission, and require reporting by certain investment advisers that are exempt from registration. In addition, we are proposing rule amendments, including amendments to the Commission’s pay to play rule, that address a number of other changes to the Advisers Act made by the Dodd-Frank Act.
