Dear Madam/Sir:

This is to notify you of my concern with the proposed rule change that raises the minimum net-worth requirement needed to invest in private funds for individuals. More not less investors should be eligible to invest in theses funds.

Please do not make the change.

Best regards,

Darrell DeBoer
