On May 3, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted significant amendments to Form PF, the confidential reporting form for certain SEC-registered investment advisers to private funds.[1] The final amendments will require (1) new “quarterly event” reporting for all private equity fund advisers (PE Fund Advisers, defined as investment advisers having at least $150 million in private equity fund assets under management) regarding certain events; (2) expanded reporting for “large private equity fund advisers” (Large PE Fund Advisers, defined as investment advisers having at least $2 billion in private equity fund assets under management); and (3) new “current” reporting for “large hedge fund advisers” (Large HF Advisers, defined as investment adviser having at least $1.5 billion in hedge fund assets under management).
