The SEC today announced settlements with 13 registered investment advisers who repeatedly failed to provide required information that the agency uses to monitor risk. According to the SEC’s orders, the advisers failed to file annual reports on Form PF informing the agency about the private funds they advise, including the amount of assets under management, fund strategy, performance, and use of borrowed money and derivatives. Private fund advisers managing $150 million or more of assets have been required to make annual filings on Form PF since 2012. The orders found that the 13 advisers were delinquent in their filings over multi-year periods. The SEC’s orders find that the advisers violated the reporting requirements of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Without admitting or denying the findings, the advisers agreed to be censured, to cease and desist, and to each pay a $75,000 civil penalty.  During the course of the SEC’s investigation, the advisers also remediated their failures by making the necessary filings. SEC
