Navigating the SEC's New Derivatives Rule
In October 2020, the SEC adopted Rule 18f-4 under the 1940 Act designed to establish a comprehensive framework towards the use of derivatives by registered funds.
The rule is set to enhance the regulation of the use of derivatives with a compliance date in the summer of 2022.
