The SEC Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations announced its 2017 examination priorities for investment advisers and investment companies, broker-dealers, transfer agents, clearing agencies, private fund advisers, national securities exchanges, and municipal advisors.

On July 23, 2014, the SEC issued final rules that will require the use of a floating net asset value (NAV) for institutional prime money market funds. These rules also allow boards to impose liquidity fees and implement redemption gates for all non-government money market funds during periods of stress. Under normal circumstances, money market funds with floating NAV will continue to be designated as “cash equivalents” under these rules. For more information, please visit
