In an open meeting scheduled for November 19, the Securities and Exchange Commission will consider proposing rules that would increase the statutory threshold for registration by investment advisers with the SEC, require advisers to hedge funds and other private funds to register with the SEC, and address reporting by certain investment advisers that are exempt from registration. Other proposed rules to be considered would implement new exemptions from the registration requirements of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 for advisers to venture capital funds and advisers with less than $150 million in private fund assets under management in the United States, and clarify the meaning of certain terms included in a new exemption for foreign private advisers.
