The article presents information on organizations in hedge fund business. For many in the hedge fund industry, hope springs eternal that the rules preventing funds from advertising could change. But the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the U.S. despite pending leadership changes that signal a more conservative bent, appears unlikely to take any major steps in that direction in the near-term. If hedge funds are currently raising money, which for most is most of the time, any public pronouncements in a mainstream newspaper or magazine could arguably be seen as advertising. The SEC discussed the advertising rules when mulling hedge fund registration, but according to agency spokesman John Nester, no action has been taken.
