Treasury Is Adopting New Reporting Requirement Regarding Cross-Border Holdings Applicable to U.S. Invesment Managers


Many U.S. investment managers and other parties will need to consider by June 30, 2011 whether they are required to report to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York monthly "snapshot" information on a new Treasury form, "TIC SLT." TIC SLT is a new part of the Treasury International Capital reporting system, which allows the U.S. Department of the Treasury and the Federal Reserve to gather information on cross-border holdings and cross-border transactions. TIC SLT gathers information on U.S. residents' holdings of foreign securities and foreign residents' holdings of U.S. securities. Notably, an investment manager may be required to report as part of its TIC SLT (1) the foreign securities held by, and (2) the shares issued to foreign residents by, the U.S. mutual funds and U.S. private funds managed by the investment manager.

A "U.S. resident" is any "individual, corporation or other entity that is incorporated or otherwise legally established in the United States, including branches, subsidiaries and affiliates of foreign entities located in the United States." A "foreign resident" is any "individual, corporation or other entity legally established outside of the United States, regardless of the actual center of economic activity of the entity."

This update provides an overview of the new reporting requirement as it applies to U.S. investment managers.
