Forum Comment Letter on SEC's Proposal regarding Adviser Business Continuity and Transition Plans

On September 6, 2016, the Forum submitted a comment letter in response to the SEC’s proposal regarding adviser business continuity and transition plans. The Forum’s letter recognizes the importance of the issue given investors’ reliance upon a fund’s adviser’s ability to identify and manage risks related to its ability to operate continuously. However, the letter urges the Commission to consider offering staff guidance rather than specific requirements in light of the diversity represented in the adviser community.
