Registration Exemptions for Investment Advisers

A person who acts as an investment adviser must register with the appropriate regulatory authorities or qualify for a registration exemption.

Two commonly relied upon exemptions are the private fund adviser exemption and the venture capital fund adviser exemption, each of which is discussed in more detail below.
