Generally, if you are "advising others regarding investment decisions for compensation" you are regulated by the SEC as an investment advisor and subject to oversight and registration with the SEC. There are exemptions, for example, a "Family Office" is not required to register. However, all investors and owners in a Family Office must be actual family and friends would be excluded.
