Private Fund Compliance Consulting
Despite the fact that some people mistakenly label private investment funds as "unregulated," these funds are subject to a variety of rules and regulations. The laws that apply to private investment funds must be strictly obeyed.
Private funds may require certain filings under the Securities Act of 1933 and state securities laws, including the Form D or limited offering exemption filings. Private fund investment managers may also have to file for registration under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and state securities laws, and they may have to register or file an exemption under the Commodity Exchange Act.
Investment professionals who manage private funds are also subject to certain federal and state rules that should be documented in a policy manual and updated on a minimum of an annual basis.
