With all the changes Dodd Frank introduced in 2011 in response to the 2008 financial crisis, the Advisers Act can be difficult to navigate and presents many new challenges for financial advisers.
New York, New York (PRWEB) January 13, 2015
Bettina Eckerle, founder of Eckerle Law, a corporate law firm, has released “The Ultimate Guide to the Advisers Act: A Practitioner’s Handbook.” The book serves as a practical, plain-English guide for the day-to-day practitioner on how to comply with regulations imposed by the Investment Advisers Act in the post Dodd-Frank era.
With more than two decades of experience as a lawyer, including as the general counsel for an industry-leading firm in the investment advisory space and with two of the top law firms in the country, Eckerle focuses her law practice on corporate and compliance issues, with a particular emphasis on the Investment Advisers Act. This ultimately led her to write the book.
“With all the changes Dodd Frank introduced in 2011 in response to the 2008 financial crisis, the Advisers Act can be difficult to navigate and presents many new challenges for financial advisers,” said Eckerle. “I wrote the book to provide people involved in the day-to-day compliance work with a guide on how to efficiently use regulation to drive business while leaving behind complicated legalese.”
“The Ultimate Guide to the Advisers Act” is essential for anyone working in the industry. The book provides a clear and comprehensive how-to guide, complete with the necessary actions to remain compliant in a variety of sectors.
Hedge funds, private equity funds, family offices, and venture capital funds will all find chapters dedicated to their specific issues. Additional topics covered include the differences between federal SEC and state registration, how to register with the SEC, revised Form ADV, calculation of regulatory assets under management, and the new Form PF.
