On October 18th, the SEC proposed rule and form amendments under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and the Investment Company Act of 1940 that, if adopted, would require institutional investment managers that are required to report holdings on a quarterly basis pursuant to Section 13(f) of the Exchange Act to report annually how they voted proxies relating to certain executive compensation matters. The proposal is in response to a requirement set forth in the Dodd-Frank Act. The proposal also would amend Form N-PX, which currently is used by registered management investment companies to file their proxy voting records with the SEC, to accommodate the new filings by institutional investment managers. Comments should be submitted on or before November 18th, 2010. Release Nos. 34-63123; IC-29463.
