The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission will oversee hundreds more private advisers at hedge funds and private equity firms than it first predicted, expanding the reach of one of the most controversial requirements of the Dodd-Frank Act.

The managers of such investment funds face a deadline tomorrow to register with the SEC. The agency expects to receive about 1,300 registration applications, according to SEC spokeswoman Judith Burns. That is about a 70 percent increase from the 750 advisers the agency said as recently as July that it expected to register.
