ABSTRACT
The article deals with the changes proposed by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for Form ADV, the form that investment advisers file when they register with the SEC. More than 10,000 registered investment advisers and hedge fund managers would be required to provide clear, current and meaningful disclosure in narrative form, under the proposed changes. The SEC is also offering brochures aimed at giving investors more detailed information about the practices of investment advisers.
