Lifting the Ban on General Solicitation for Private Funds

I previously commented on the bright future for the hedge fund industry. More good news for the industry it seems: private funds could find the ban on general solicitation lifted very soon under SEC rules implementing the provisions of the JOBS Act. Europe’s pending new AIFM regime for alternative investments is stricter but still has lots of loopholes.
Long consigned to silence, hedge fund advisers are starting to practise their sales pitches. Private funds piggybacked on the JOBS Act reforms in the hope of widening the pool of investors they can pitch to. The SEC is busy writing the rules that would put the bill into practice. That process has been bedevilled by delays but it seems inevitable it will overturn the Depression-era ban on “general solicitation”.
