SEC’s Proposed Amendment to Its Custody Rule

May 20, 2009

On May 20, 2009, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed amendments to Rule 206(4)-2, relating to custody of client assets, under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. The definition of custody would continue to include arrangements in which a registered adviser is authorized or permitted to withdraw client funds or securities maintained with a custodian upon the adviser’s instruction to the custodian. CFP Board submitted comments to the SEC in a letter dated July 28, 2009, that focused on two of the proposed amendments.
