ACA Announces Liquidity Risk Management Program Rule Survey Results

August 6, 2018

In response to the mutual fund industry’s need for transparency and insight into how peers are approaching the SEC's liquidity risk management program rule, ACA recently conducted a survey of mutual fund/ETF complexes and investment advisers/sub-advisers to mutual funds/ETFs. ACA received anonymous responses from 77 entities, with an almost even split between fund complexes and advisers. 

The survey covered the following topics:

  • The liquidity program administrator
  • The delegation and frequency of liquidity classification
  • Asset class classification
  • Board of director approval of a fund’s liquidity program
  • “Primarily” highly liquid assets
  • In-Kind ETFs
