Venture capital funds are subject to various federal and state securities laws and regulations, including the Securities Act of 1933, the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, and the Investment Company Act of 1940. These laws and regulations govern the offering, sale, and management of securities, as well as the disclosure and reporting requirements for investment companies. Policies and regulations are constantly evolving in response to changing market conditions. For example, the SEC recently adopted amendments to the definition of "accredited investor" to expand the pool of eligible investors for private offerings. Additionally, the SEC has proposed changes to the rules governing the use of finders in private offerings. Pending and future changes to the regulatory environment may impact FIC investment strategies.
Venture capital funds must comply with various compliance requirements, including registration with the SEC as an investment adviser, compliance with anti-fraud provisions, and adherence to reporting and disclosure requirements. Additionally, venture capital funds must comply with state securities laws and regulations in the states where they operate.
