[author: ]

The staff of the SEC has reported that 1,504 advisers to hedge funds and other private funds have registered with the agency since the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act mandated such registration.

A total of 11,002 investment advisers now are SEC-registered, with 37% advising hedge funds and other private funds. Assets under management at SEC-registered advisers has risen about $5.7 trillion, or 13%, even though the number of advisers fell about 15% as the Dodd-Frank Act required mid-sized advisers to move from federal to state oversight.
