On June 23, 2022, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted amendments to Rule 13f-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) and Form 13F (Amendments) that, among other things, will require the electronic filing of confidential treatment requests for filings made under Section 13(f) of the Exchange Act.1
Section 13(f) requires institutional investment managers2 who exercise investment discretion over accounts holding certain U.S. equity securities having an aggregate fair market value of at least $100 million to file quarterly Form 13F reports. Managers may request confidential treatment for some or all of the securities required to be publicly disclosed on Form 13F if they meet the eligibility criteria.
