SEC Amends Proxy Voting Reporting Requirements
November 2, 2022
The SEC has issued a final rule, Enhanced Reporting of Proxy Votes by Registered Management Investment Companies; Reporting of Executive Compensation Votes by Institutional Investment Managers. The final rule amends Form N-PX “to enhance the information mutual funds, exchange-traded funds . . . , and certain other funds currently report about their proxy votes and to make that information easier to analyze.” In addition, in response to a mandate of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, “an institutional investment manager subject to the Exchange Act [is required] to report on Form N-PX how it voted proxies relating to executive compensation matters, as required by the Exchange Act.”
