Research Package | The SEC Proposed Rule 2a-5

A Comprehensive Research & Advisory Package for Fund Boards, Investment Advisers and Service Providers


The Securities and Exchange Commission has just proposed a new rule that would establish a new framework for fund valuation practices. The rule is designed to clarify how fund boards can satisfy their valuation obligations in light of market developments, including an increase in the variety of asset classes held by funds and an increase in both the volume and type of data used in valuation determinations. The new rule is the most comprehensive statement of mutual fund fair valuation obligations for nearly 50 years and is likely to have profound changes for fund boards and managers.

To help clarify the Commission's thinking behind these proposals and to evaluate what the final outcome of the Rule might be following the comment process, Voltaire Advisors has been conducting a program of independent research and consultation with industry experts. This program consists of three Webinars and a Special Report outlined below:
