Please join Vedder Price attorneys Deborah Bielicke Eades, W. Thomas Conner, Juan Arciniegas and Nathaniel Segal for a discussion about the practical implications of the SEC’s new rule governing the use of derivatives by registered investment companies.

As adopted, the new derivatives rule reflects significant changes to the rule as initially proposed, and represents a comprehensive overhaul of the current regulatory framework governing the use of derivatives by mutual funds, closed-end funds, ETFs and business development companies.

During this webinar, participants will gain key insights regarding the following:

  • The SEC’s thinking and considerations when adopting the new rule
  • Practical implementation considerations for derivatives usage in a variety of situations, including exceptions for limited derivatives users, board reporting and oversight, and the treatment of leveraged/inverse exchange-traded funds
  • The broad impact of the new rule on the asset management industry

We strongly encourage you to submit confidential questions for the panelists in advance via the registration page, or to send your questions directly to
