Direct Insights Webinar Series: The SEC’s Proposed Safeguarding Rule: Implications for Qualified Custodians and Advisers

The SEC’s proposed “Safeguarding Rule” represents the most significant overhaul of the current Custody Rule since it was last amended by the SEC in 2009. The scope and breadth of the proposed Safeguarding Rule represents a continued trend of the SEC stretching its rulemaking authority.

Watch as they discuss key features of the rule, including:

  • The current status of the proposed Safeguarding Rule;
  • The expanded definition of client “assets”;
  • The revised definition of “qualified custodian”;
  • The “written agreement” requirement for advisers; and
  • Why the 5th Circuit vacating the SEC’s Private Funds Rule may push the SEC to re-propose the Safeguarding Rule in its entirety.
