Commissioner Announces Action To Alleviate Exempt Adviser Uncertainty

This afternoon, Commissioner Preston DuFauchard released this letter regarding the upcoming demise of the federal private adviser exemption (Section 203(b)(3) of the Investment Adviser Act of 1940). The Commissioner’s letter is in response to concerns about the continued viability of Rule 260.204.9 which explicitly refers to Section 203(b)(3). Essentially, the Commissioner is announcing that he will be issuing emergency regulations to preserve the status quo.
