The Southeastern Hedge Fund Association Cordially Invites You to--

"Hedge Fund Regulation-Will the SEC Require Hedge Fund Managers to Register?"If so, what do you need to know about meeting the SEC's compliance requirements.

The SEC has proposed regulations that will require Hedge Fund Managers to register as Investment Advisors. While the final regulations are not yet completed, it would behoove managers to become familiar with the rules, regulations and compliance requirements that an Investment Advisor must follow once registered.

The Southeast Hedge Fund Association has assembled a panel of experts to discuss the likelihood of the enactment of this proposal and the myriad factors involved in meeting the extensive and complex compliance requirements. Many organizations are charging participants thousands of dollars to review these issues. Your membership dues are all you need to hear this one-hour presentation.

October 27, 2004. Place: Ritz Carlton Buckhead; Time: 6:00 until 8:00 PM. Please RSVP to Kathy Garner by phone at 770-978-1230 or e-mail.
