Exchange Traded Funds
Exchange-Traded Funds Compliance
Our clients advise or distribute billions of dollars of Exchange-Traded Funds (ETF) every year, so we are well versed in the unique needs of investment managers working with these products. These include the requirements of Rule 6c-11, exchange listing standards, and other requirements applicable to Fund boards and investment advisers to these products.
As ETFs have exploded in growth during the last 15 years, culminating in Rule 6c-11’s adoption, Vigilant has worked with numerous companies including those managing more complicated, actively managed and leveraged ETFs that require tailored customized compliance policies and procedures, and often receive additional regulatory scrutiny. Our experienced professionals, who hail from the legal, financial and accounting industries, give you the insight and expertise needed to grow your business comfortably, knowing that your compliance program is in good hands.
