The Hedge Fund Association, an industry lobby group, is pleased with the decision of the Securities and Exchange Commission to lift an 80-year-old ban on hedge fund advertising.
“We believe that the SEC's actions are a positive step for both accredited investors and hedge fund managers, and will indeed create new jobs," HFA President Mitch Ackles told FINalternatives.

Ackles said his association plans to hold several symposiums and webinars in the next few months to help members adapt to the new advertising rules.
