SEC Says: Hedge Fund, Private Equity Assets Increase 22% YTD

Securities and Exchange Commission announced that the assets managed by private equity and hedge funds registered with U.S. regulators increased 22% from year-to-date.
Regulatory assets under management rose to $8.9 trillion from $7.3 trillion for the 12 months ended in May 2014, the agency said in an Aug. 15 report. Regulatory assets include borrowed money, or leverage.
Qualifying hedge funds, those with a net asset value of at least $500 million, oversaw about $4 trillion compared with $3.3 trillion last year, the SEC said. There were 1,326 hedge funds reported by 460 filers.
The SEC is required to submit an annual report to Congress under the Dodd-Frank regulatory reform legislation on how it uses data collected from private funds. Investment advisers that manage at least $150 million must file the form once a year, and those with more than $1.5 billion in gross hedge-fund assets must file quarterly. For each separate fund with more than $500 million in net assets, they must provide more detailed data on the amount of borrowing, risk and the rate at which they can sell investments quickly.
