The passing of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in 2010 requires US advisers to private funds with at least $150 million in assets under management to register with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Real estate funds are not exempt from registration – for private real estate advisers, the key question whether to register depends on if the funds contain securities.
This publication, The US Private Real Estate Fund Compliance Guide, is a detailed source of practical and insightful advice on SEC registration and compliance for private real estate fund managers who are registering for the first time, newly registered investment advisers or experienced advisers who are seeking guidance on the latest regulatory reforms and changes.
Lead-edited by Charles Lerner of Fiduciary Compliance Associates, this publication addresses in detail key compliance areas including the registration process, marketing, custody, anti-corruption, setting up a compliance program, managing conflicts of interest, books and records, valuation and pricing, and advisory boards.
