In response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Securities and Exchange Commission and its Staff have provided temporary regulatory relief and guidance to assist a variety of market participants. This document summarizes the SEC’s actions that affect public companies, registered investment companies and registered investment advisors. The SEC Staff is monitoring developments closely and will consider additional relief and guidance from other regulatory requirements for those affected by the coronavirus as conditions warrant. We will update this summary as the SEC takes additional actions.
The guide linked below should not be viewed as reflective of the SEC’s entire response to the crisis, and we anticipate significant changes in the coming weeks and months as the situation evolves. Moreover, the SEC has encouraged registrants or other persons in need of additional assistance to contact the Staff to discuss their individual facts and circumstances.
