Agency: Securities and Exchange Commission, Agencies and Commissions
The Securities and Exchange Commission (the ``Commission'') is adopting rules to implement new exemptions from the registration requirements of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 for advisers to certain privately offered investment funds; these exemptions were enacted as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (the ``Dodd-Frank Act''). As required by Title IV of the Dodd-Frank Actthe Private Fund Investment Advisers Registration Act of 2010the new rules define ``venture capital fund'' and provide an exemption from registration for advisers with less than $150 million in private fund assets under management in the United States. The new rules also clarify the meaning of certain terms included in a new exemption from registration for ``foreign private advisers.''
