Private Funds offer unique and varied opportunities in the securities industry. With these opportunities come a complicated legal minefield as to navigating the rules and regulations of operating a Private Fund.
Generally, advisers to funds either must file as an Exempt Reporting Adviser, or “ERA”, or register as an adviser to a Private Fund.
One of the most important SEC filings for advisers to private funds is the Form PF. Form PF is required to be filed when:
- The advisory firm is registered or required to federally register with the SEC as an investment adviser, AND
- The advisory firm manages one or more private funds, AND
- The advisory firm manages at least $150 million in private fund assets under management as of the last day of the most recently completed fiscal year.
The regulations governing private funds are complex and can create significant liability for advisers to private funds if they are not strictly followed, even inadvertently. Advisers are responsible for understanding the labyrinth of securities and other industry regulations that govern their business.
