SEC Issues Proposal to Amend Investment Adviser Registration

On June 17, 2015, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a proposed rule that would revise the paperwork requirements for investment advisers who are registering with the SEC and with their state.  Specifically, the SEC is proposing amendments to Form ADV that are designed to provide additional information regarding advisers, including information about their separately managed account business.  The proposal would also incorporate a method for private fund adviser entities operating a single advisory business to register using a single Form ADV.  Additionally, the proposal would make clarifying, technical and other amendments to certain Form ADV items and instructions.
