This webinar addresses the new ESG-related reforms proposed by the SEC on 25 May 2022. The SEC proposed new disclosure requirements and reporting obligations that, if adopted, would affect and impose challenges on investment companies registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940, including mutual funds, ETFs, and closed-end funds.

The following learning objectives are covered:

  • Address the ESG disclosure rule proposals as they are applicable to registered investment companies.
  • Address the proposed changes to Rule 35d-1 (the Names Rule) that pertain to the use of ESG-related terms in registered fund names.
  • Address potential obstacles and consequences imposed by the proposed rules.
  • Address key topics on which funds should consider commenting.
