Connecticut To Raise Accredited Hedge Fund Investor Standard

West Palm Beach (HedgeCo.net) – The Banks Committee of the Connecticut General Assembly voted yesterday to pass a bill that will raise the minimum financial qualifications for hedge fund investors to $2.5 million, and for institutional investors, $5 million.

If the bill, called "An Act Concerning Hedge Funds" is passed by the Connecticut General Assembly, it may become effective as early as October 1, 2009.

This marks a substantial increase above the minimum investor assets ($1 million) required under existing federal standards, making it harder for hedge fund managers in Connecticut to raise capital.

The Connecticut Bill was one of three bills introduced in mid-February to the legislature for consideration by the Banks Committee of the Connecticut General Assembly. Two other bills cover financial disclosure and licensing requirements, they up for vote in the near future.
