Highlights of the SEC Investment Company Rule
Form N-PORT and Related Changes
Form N-PORT will disclose each non-money market fund's portfolio to the SEC monthly and the public quarterly in a machine readable format. Form N-Q is rescinded, but the equivalent of Form N-Q, the human viewable Part F, will still be required as an attachment to the Q1 and Q3 Form N-PORT filing. The Certification of Form N-CSR will be extended to six months.
Form N-CEN and Related Changes
Form N-CEN will replace Form N-SAR for communicating census information in a machine readable format to the SEC and the public. Form N-CEN will be filled annually, due 75 dates after year end. The Form N-SAR exhibit reporting a change in independent registered public accountants moves to Form N-CSR
Amendments to Regulation S-X and Related Changes
The Article 12 Schedules required by Regulation S-X have been updated to disclose information consistent with the derivative disclosures on Form N-PORT. The corresponding Article 6 statements and tax disclosures in the notes to the financial statements have also been updated. Additional securities lending disclosures in the Statement of Additional Information, or in Form N-CSR for closed end funds.
