After years of operating in the shadows, hedge funds are about to be thrust into the light. Under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, most hedge funds have to register with the SEC by July 2011. But the unprecedented transparency brought by SEC registration may find more than a few fund managers unprepared -- and feeling a bit uneasy.

To help you survive life under the SEC, Advanced Trading presents the SEC Registration Survival Guide, a complete guide to registering with the Securities and Exchange Commission and complying with the regulator's rules. This special digital edition of Advanced Trading is available for download now.
