This chapter examines the regulatory duties of investment managers arising from the provision of investment advisory and management services. Managers of private investment funds that are authorised or regulated as investment advisers or managers can owe regulatory duties arising under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (FSMA) in the UK and the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 in the United States. The chapter begins with a discussion of the UK Financial Conduct Authority’s (FCA) regulation of the conduct of firms authorised under the FSMA, including collective investment schemes, public investment funds, and fiduciary duty in the financial services regulatory regime. It then considers the FCA’s regulatory response to private investment funds as well as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s compliance programme for investment advisers and managers primarily under the Advisers Act. It concludes with an analysis of financial services regulation of fiduciary duties.
