BREAKING NEWS: Implications of the SEC’s just released Mutual Fund Guidance

The long awaited result of the SEC’s distribution in guise sweeps hit today; you can find the link here.  Many of the points covered were expected, and most of the requirements for compliance identified are currently supported by the Oversight platform Delta Data actually developed in anticipation of this guidance. Here is the overarching theme in this news: the 12b1 plan represents the only funds that can be used for distribution expense, and anything that promotes sales in any way, whether direct or indirect, must be allocated as an expense to the advisor and/or other relevant service providers, not the fund.

SEC Cranks Up Probe Into Fund Firms’ Fees

Inquiry centers on whether money managers are properly disclosing additional costs to investors

By Kirsten Grind

U.S. securities regulators are examining whether mutual-fund managers are dipping more deeply than allowed into their investors’ money to compensate the brokerages that distribute their products, according to people familiar with the matter.

OppenheimerFunds, Franklin Templeton and J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. are among more than a dozen fund firms that have been reviewed by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which began a broad sweep of how companies sell their products about two years ago, these people said.
