The Dodd-Frank Act both expands and contracts the potential universe of types of investment advisers subject to registration with the SEC under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. The Registration Act requires all investment advisers with assets under management of $100 million or more to register with the SEC, subject to certain exemptions. The registration provisions of the Registration Act must be complied with on or after July 21, 2011.

  • Who is required to register
  • What exemptions are available
