Numerous states have recently adopted or proposed rules that exempt hedge funds, or "private funds" from the registration requirement of those states' investment adviser laws. We have previously blogged about a number of state rules including those in Virginia, California, Maine, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Colorado and Rhode Island. The majority of the rules are similar to one another; however, there are a few key differences. Attached is a table detailing the similarities and differences among the seven different states.
