Jan 19 -- The Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”) is soliciting comments by March 20, 2023 regarding Investment Company Interactive Data. Certain funds have current requirements to submit to the Commission information included in their registration statements, or information included in or amended by any post-effective amendments to such registration statements, in response to certain form items in structured data language (“Investment Company Interactive Data”).

On October 26, 2022, the Commission adopted rule and form amendments that require open-end management investment companies (“open-end funds”) to transmit concise and visually engaging annual and semi-annual reports to shareholders that highlight key information that is particularly important for retail investors to assess and monitor their fund investments. The Commission also adopted amendments to Form N-1A, Form N-CSR, and rule 405 of Regulation S-T to require certain new structured data requirements for open-end funds. Specifically, the final rule and form amendments require open-end funds to tag their shareholder report contents using Inline eXtensible Business Reporting Language or “Inline XBRL.” These requirements will make open-end funds' shareholder report disclosure more readily available and easily accessible for aggregation, comparison, filtering, and other analysis.

The collection of information under the Investment Company Interactive Data requirements is mandatory for all funds. Responses to the disclosure requirements will not be kept confidential.

The collection of information requirements of the proposed amendments would be set forth in the respective forms and related rules. The information required by the proposed amendments would be filed electronically with the Commission using the Commission’s Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval (EDGAR) system, which provides for automated filing, processing, and dissemination of disclosure filings. This automation has increased the speed, accuracy, and availability of information, generating benefits to investors and financial markets. Interactive data required by this collection of information is required to be filed with the Commission electronically on EDGAR.
