SEC Vote Preserves Soft Dollar - More to Come on Commission Sharing
July 13, 2006 @ 12:16 PM | By Cory Levine

By Ivy Schmerken, Wall Street & Technology In case you didn't notice, the Securities and Exchange Commission voted 5-0 yesterday to preserve soft dollars. The SEC agreed to uphold and implement its "interpretive guidance" on asset managers using commission dollars to pay for brokerage and research services under 28(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The SEC released the interpretive guidance for public comment last October. Commenting on the vote, Michael Mayhew, CEO of Integrity Research, wrote in his blog, "SEC Votes to Keep Soft Dollars In Place" yesterday, "In short, the commission expressed its support for continuing to allow money managers to use soft dollars to pay for proprietary and third-party research services, clarifying months of uncertainty in the marketplace whether soft dollars would continue to be used as the primary currency to purchase investment research." In an interview today, Mayhew says the SEC basically voted on implementing the interpretive guidance as rule. "That's effectively what's happened there wasn't any change to their interpretive guidance."

European Commissioner Flexes Muscles on Clearing and Settlement, Stops Short of Regulation
July 12, 2006 @ 16:43 PM | By Cory Levine

By Cory Levine, Wall Street & Technology European internal market and services commissioner Charlie McCreevy again urged the European Union to repair the onerous and costly cross-border clearing and settlement processes that underpin the European markets in a meeting of the European Parliament's Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee on Tuesday. In doing so, McCreevy laid out deadlines for improvements, but indicated a reluctance to impose an official regulation. McCreevy issued what he termed a "code of conduct" to the European financial services industry under which he placed deadlines beginning at the end of 2006 and continuing into 2007 on the various improvements he deems necessary to bring clearing and settlement in the EU up to snuff. The areas on which McCreevy focused were price transparency, interoperability, separate accounting of the main clearing and settlement activities, and service price unbundling. However, despite the stalwart verbiage of McCreevy's rhetoric and his promise that his agenda "will be backed up by a strong procedure for verification and external auditing" he was openly hesitant over the possibility of putting forth a regulation mandating the improvement of clearing and settlement, renouncing the possibility to his audience.
