(Newser) – From now on, George Soros’ hedge fund is strictly a family affair. The billionaire has decided to oust all outside investors from the fund, in order to duck new federal regulations requiring hedge funds to register with the SEC, Bloomberg reports. From now on, the fund will manage Soros’ own money and that of his family. The move is mostly symbolic, however—less than $1 billion of the fund’s $25.5 billion in assets belonged to outsiders.
