- U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
The U.S. Congress recently passed the J.O.B.S. Act (Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act), which reversed an 80 year old ban on general solicitation and advertising in the Federal Securities Law for privately placed direct investments. The U.S. Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) passed and proposed several new rules (e.g., Rule 506c) implementing the new law. The rules in part provide that allowable general solicitation or advertising must provide for sales to only “Accredited Investors” which is defined in SEC Regulation D. Accordingly, beginning in the Fall of 2013, for the first time since the Securities Act of 1933 became law, it is now legal under certain allowable circumstances to advertise private alternative investments to the public.
New ideas for an evolving marketplace made possible by legislative initiative.
The combination of artificially low interest rates and over-priced equities is also leading investors to search for alternatives
