The Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, is a federal statute signed into law on July 21, 2010. The Act offers many sweeping changes to the financial regulatory environment and affects almost every aspect of the nation’s financial services industry. Under the Act, investment managers/advisers to private equity funds and all private investment funds will have to register as investment advisers with the SEC no later than July 21, 2011. There is a provision that exempts managers of private equity funds with less than $150 million in assets under management from registering. If you do not fall within the exemption, then failing to register would constitute a willful violation of the act.
