Unraveling the SEC's Fund of Funds Rule Series

KL Gates Hosted Event
Date: 28 October - 19 November 2020
Time: 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM ET
Location: via Webinar

On 7 October 2020, the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted new rule 12d1-4, designed to streamline the regulatory framework applicable to funds that invest in other funds (funds of funds). The new rule significantly reorders the current web of regulation applicable to fund of funds arrangements by subjecting most funds of funds to Rule 12d1-4.

This interactive series of webinars will feature firm lawyers who are well versed on the new rule, and will delve into the particulars of Rule 12d1-4 and their wide-ranging implications for our clients and contacts. The first session will provide a general overview of the new rule, the second session will focus on the impacts of Rule 12d1-4 on Closed-End Funds and BDCs, and the third will focus on the impacts of Rule 12d1-4 on Exchange-Traded Funds.

Topic suggestions for panelists may be presented upon registration.
