31 Jul SEC – Reporting Threshold for Institutional Investment Managers (Form 13F)
July 31, 2020 – The SEC is proposing to update the reporting threshold for Form 13F reports by institutional investment managers for the first time in 45 years, raising the reporting threshold from $100 million to $3.5 billion to reflect the change in size and structure of the U.S. equities market since 1975, when Congress adopted the requirement for these managers to file holdings reports with the Commission.
The proposal also would amend Form 13F to increase the information provided by institutional investment managers by eliminating the omission threshold for individual securities and requiring managers to provide additional identifying information.
The Commission is also proposing to make certain technical amendments, including to modernize the structure of data reporting and amend the instructions on Form 13F for confidential treatment requests in-light-of a recent decision of the U.S. Supreme Court.
Comments should be received on or before September 29, 2020.
