WASHINGTON, D.C. (March 11, 2022) – The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has published a proposed rule regarding beneficial ownership reporting under Schedules 13D and 13G. The proposal would shorten the timeframe for investment managers to report a 5% ownership stake in a company to five (5) days (from 10 days) on Schedule 13D. Additionally, a 5% ownership stake for 13G filers would have to be disclosed five (5) days after the month in which a fund reaches the 5% threshold (current rules require disclosure 45 days after year-end) (fact sheet).
