Prior to the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, Section b 6 of the Advisers Act excluded from the registration requirement in Section a of the Advisers Act any investment adviser registered with the CFTC as a commodity trading advisor whose business did not consist primarily of acting as an investment adviser, as defined in Section a 11 of the Advisers Act, and who did not act as an investment adviser to an investment company registered under the Investment Company Act of "Registered Fund" or a business development company "BDC".
We refer to that provision as "Old Section b 6. Section b 6 now exempts from the requirement to register with the Commission: The staff believes such an adviser — one to a Registered Fund or BDC, A report of the ica audit one whose business is predominantly the provision of securities-related advice — is not exempt under Section b 6 B.
The staff believes that any other reading of Section b 6 B as it applies to an investment adviser to a private fund would not be consistent with the protection of investors or the purposes fairly intended by the policy and provisions of the Advisers Act, as amended by the Dodd-Frank Act.
For example, the staff believes that the exemption in Section b 6 B is not available to a CFTC-registered investment adviser who advises a private fund and whose business is not predominately the provision of securities-related advice, if such investment adviser acts as an investment adviser to a Registered Fund or a BDC.
The staff is not aware of any suggestion in the legislative history of the Dodd-Frank Act that Congress intended to exempt from the requirement to register as an investment adviser any adviser to a Registered Fund or a BDC. The staff also believes that the exemption in Section b 6 B is not available to a CFTC-registered investment adviser who advises a private fund and whose business was prior to the enactment of the Dodd-Frank Act and remains predominately the provision of securities-related advice.
The staff recently was asked for its views on when an investment adviser may obtain consent for these purposes with respect to the assignment of an advisory contract that involved two steps.
The securities of the investment adviser were transferred first temporarily in this case for one day to an intermediate entity solely for tax purposes, and then to the ultimate purchaser. The requestor asked whether it could obtain consent to both steps in the transaction at the same time, rather than obtaining consent separately i.
We advised the investment adviser that it may be sufficient for the adviser to obtain consent to both steps in the transaction at the same time.
We noted that regardless of whether the adviser obtains consent at the same time or separately, it must provide sufficient information to its clients to enable them to make an informed decision, and the opportunity for the clients to withhold consent.
We also noted that we were taking no position relating to the tax issues raised by the inquiry. In providing this guidance, we noted certain previously issued related guidance.
The section merely provides that the contract must contain the specified provision. See American Century Companies, Inc. Advisory Contracts — Transition for Newly Registered and Registering Advisers Sections a 2 and 3 of the Advisers Act generally prohibit registered advisers, and advisers required to be registered, from entering into, extending, renewing, or performing under an advisory contract that fails to include the provisions specified by those sections.
In general, this means that an advisory contract must provide that i the contract may not be assigned by a registered adviser without the consent of the client and ii the registered adviser, if a partnership, will notify its clients of any change in membership within a reasonable time after such change.
As a result of the Dodd-Frank Act changes to the Advisers Act, previously exempt advisers are now required to register with the Commission. Nevertheless, newly registering advisers may be operating under existing advisory contracts that were entered into when such advisers were neither registered nor required to be registered with the Commission.
As a result, these advisory contracts may fail to include the specified provisions of sections a 2 and 3. Advisers may need to seek the consent of their clients to amend the advisory contracts to include these provisions. Obtaining the consent of clients in a timely fashion to amend all existing advisory contracts, however, may be impracticable for some advisers.
The Commission has previously sought to minimize the disruption to the contracts of newly registering advisers when such contracts were permissible at the time they were entered into. Accordingly, the staff would not recommend enforcement action to the Commission under sections a 2 and 3 of the Advisers Act if an adviser that has applied for registration but was not registered, nor required to be registered, when it entered into its advisory contracts, did not amend an advisory contract to include the provisions required by sections a 2 and 3provided that: The staff's analysis of the status of Non Securities Advisers under the Advisers and the Company Acts is set forth below.
An investment adviser, as defined in Section a 11 of the Advisers Act, generally is required to register with the Commission unless the adviser qualifies for an exemption under Section b of the Advisers Act or is prohibited from registering under Section A of the Advisers Act.
Section a 11 defines "investment adviser," in relevant part, as "any person who, for compensation, engages in the business of advising others, either directly or through publications or writings, as to the value of securities or as to the advisability of investing in, purchasing, or selling securities, or who, for compensation and as part of a regular business, issues or promulgates analyses or reports concerning securities.
The staff understands that many Non-Securities Advisers to RICs register under the Advisers Act as a precautionary matter because they are not certain that the advice they provide has not or would not concern securities.
Section 2 a 20 of the Company Act defines an investment adviser to an investment company, in part, to include a person who "regularly furnishes advice to such company with respect to the desirability of investing in, purchasing or selling securities or other property, or is empowered to determine what securities or other property shall be purchased or sold by such company.
These provisions include, among others, Section 15 of the Company Act governing the investment adviser's contract and Section 17 of the Company Act prohibiting certain affiliated transactions.

The management agreement would provide for a management fee rate equal to the sum of the advisory fee rate assessed under the existing advisory agreement, and the fee rate payable under the existing administration agreement.
The management agreement would be approved by the board of directors of the fund, including a majority of independent directors.
A footnote to the fee table breaking out the fee rates attributable to the advisory and administration services also would be included.
