Understanding the SEC's Proposed Modernized Fund Shareholder Reports and Disclosures

KL Gates Hosted Event
Date: September 2020

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has proposed a bold new approach to shareholder and investor communications by investment companies registered on Form N-1A under the Investment Company Act of 1940 based on the premise that new and existing shareholders require different information. Details of the comprehensive restructuring of the prospectus and shareholder report regulatory scheme are discussed in a 646 page SEC release that raises many questions. The short 60-day comment period suggests the SEC has a goal of adopting the proposals before Chair Jay Clayton leaves the SEC, which he has announced will be at the end of the year.
