  • Short-term initiatives of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) include potential changes to Form N-SAR and rulemaking relating to money market reform, variable annuity disclosure, target date retirement funds, exchange-traded funds, and say on pay.
  • FINRA will conduct a refresh review of its rules, including its advertising rules.
  • CFTC rules requiring mandatory clearing of non-deliverable FX forwards and options are expected to be proposed in May.
  • The SEC will conduct a national sweep exam of alternative funds, beginning this summer, that initially will target 15-20 fund complexes and will focus on compliance, liquidity, leverage, and board oversight.

If you would like to discuss a specific session, or any other aspect of the conference, please contact any of the lawyers listed on the back cover of the memorandum or the Ropes & Gray lawyer with whom you regularly work.
