The SEC has proposed to increase the Form 13F reporting threshold from USD 100 million to USD 3.5 billion. Form 13F is applicable to an investment manager that exercises investment discretion on accounts holding at least USD 100 million in “Section 13(f) securities”- generally any U.S equities. This is the first time the threshold has been adjusted since the Form 13F was introduced in 1978. It is also proposed to review the reporting threshold every five years. The proposal will be published on the Commission’s website, and in the Federal Register, and there will be a 60-day comment period following publication in the Federal Register.
