Fund of Funds Arrangements 

The SEC adopted a new rule under the Investment Company Act of 1940 to streamline and enhance the regulatory framework applicable to funds that invest in other funds (“fund of funds” arrangements). In connection with the new rule, the Commission rescinded rule 12d1-2 under the Act and certain exemptive relief that has been granted from sections 12(d)(1)(A), (B), (C), and (G) of the Act permitting certain fund of funds arrangements. Finally, the Commission adopted related amendments to rule 12d1-1 under the Act and to Form N-CEN. The rule became effective on January 19, 2021.
