  1. The statutory threshold for SEC registration of investment advisers;
  2. SEC registrations by advisers to hedge funds and other private funds;
  3. Reporting requirements for exempt private fund advisers;
  4. Exemptions for (a) venture capital fund advisers, (b) advisers to private funds with less than $150 million in private fund assets under management in the United States, (c) foreign private advisers; and
  5. Exclusion of "family offices" from the definition of an investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940
At this time, there is no indication whether registration will be required on July 21, 2011, or if the compliance date will be delayed.
