Form ADV Part 1: Annual Updating Amendment and More
September 9, 2014
Tuesday 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM (ET)
Inaccurate and/or inadequate Form ADV disclosures are consistently cited in the SEC's and many states' list of “Top Deficiencies.” In this session, experts will systematically walk through Form ADV Part 1 and examine disclosure requirements that impact all advisers and those that impact private fund advisers. This session will also review the method of calculating “regulatory assets under management (RAUM),” and provide guidance on correlating the information reported in Form ADV Part 1 to disclosures in Form ADV Part 2.
In addition to a detailed overview of Form ADV Part 1, Schedule D, and applicable Form ADV Part 1 Instructions, instructors will help you fully understand Annual Amendment filing requirements, appreciate the meaning of certain key words and terms, and avoid making common mistakes.
This session will also provide a brief summary of disclosure requirements under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 - Form 13F, Schedule 13D, Schedule 13G, and Form13H reporting procedures - and the applicability of these filings to certain investment advisers.
