The JOBS Act allows hedge funds to advertise directly to investors for the first time. Hedge fund executives and marketing managers have set their sights on attracting the high net worth clients that have, until now, been the exclusive providence of wealth managers and financial advisors. Financial advisors and wealth managers need to educate themselves and their clients about the JOBS Act and hedge funds as well as strategically communicate their value proposition to their clients or risk losing them to hedge funds.
