Will you be ready when compliance with new forms begins in 2018? On October 13, 2016, the SEC adopted a rule requiring Form N-PORT, a new form to be used by non-money market funds to report series-level data within 30 days of the end of each month. Form N-PORT will contain detailed information on virtually all of a fund’s portfolio holdings, including risk metrics. While Form N-Q will be retired, a “human-readable” portfolio of investments will still be required 60 days after the first and third quarters. While Form N-PORTs will be due monthly, new Form N-CEN is an annual census form (essentially a modernization and expansion of the N-SAR, which will be retired). This form will need to be filed by the 75th day after a fund’s fiscal year end.
