  • Regulatory Update • Adoption of Hedge Fund Advisor Registration Rules (pg. 8) • Deferred Effective Date of Code of Ethics Rule (pg. 5) • "Hard Close" Alternatives (pg. 5) • Fund Transaction Costs/Soft Dollars - NASD Task Force Report (pg. 6) • Mandatory Redemption Fees/Fair Valuation Issues (pg.6) • Investment Company Governance (pg. 10) • Breaking developments www.seiglobalfundservices.com/knowledge.asp How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 8
  • Adopted Rules • Amendments to Investment Company Advertising Rules (already went into effect as of 3/31/04) • Disclosure of Breakpoint Discounts by Mutual Funds • Prohibition on the Use of Brokerage Commissions to Finance Distribution How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 9
  • Disclosure of Breakpoint Discounts by Mutual Funds (9/1/04) • Must ensure that breakpoints are strictly applied • Disclosure must match “reality,” explain aggregation rules and should be concise • Method used to value accounts must be determined and disclosed – Historical cost – Net amount invested (net asset value) – Offering price (public offering price) • Must capture all necessary shareholder information for purposes of aggregation • Disclose whether shareholders must provide certain information to assist funds with properly applying breakpoints (account statements) • Must verify processes and procedures used by T/As and sub-T/As (i.e., financial intermediaries) to ensure they are making the proper determinations • Funds should have T/As and sub-T/As review draft disclosure before finalizing • Will your website make breakpoint information available (if not, SEC requires funds to explain why not) How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 10
  • Prohibition on the Use of Brokerage Commissions to Finance Distribution (12/13/04) • New rule prohibits compensating broker-dealers either by directing transactions or by participation in “step out” arrangements (broad interpretation) • The ban extends to any arrangement or understanding, whether binding or not • Proving “best execution” alone is not sufficient (policies & procedures must ensure selection of a selling broker is not influenced by fund sale considerations) • Policies & procedures require board approval and are covered by new rule 38a-1 • New rule requires written procedures if fund executes portfolio trades through any broker- dealer who also sells fund shares • Adopting release instructs CCOs to monitor and periodically test policies & procedures • Challenge of new rule is that a fund must be able to “prove that it is innocent” • SEC did not provide significant guidance on monitoring. At a minimum, CCO should look for a significant correlation between sales and the direction of brokerage that might suggest existence of informal arrangements How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 11
  • Proposed Rules • Compensation for the Sale of Investment Company Securities (By requiring disclosure of revenue sharing arrangements and differential cash compensation arrangements to customers, NASD is attempting to identify and eliminate potential conflicts of interest) • Confirmation Requirements and Point of Sale Disclosure Requirements (SEC is attempting to eliminate potential conflicts of interest) • Disclosure of Mutual Fund Expense Ratios in Performance Advertising (Controversial “text box” will further focus shareholders on fund expenses) • Request for Comments on Measures to Improve Disclosure of Mutual Fund Transaction Costs (Could put additional pressure on funds to prohibit using fund brokerage for soft dollar for purposes benefiting the advisor) How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 12
  • Implications for Mutual Funds Where Might Mutual Fund Distribution End Up In 2005-06? How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 13

  • Distribution Trends ● Landscape: • Shift to fee-based pricing and the selection of the best of breed by the financial intermediary – Mergers/liquidations of funds to reduce numbers • Importance of scaleable advice • Retirement plan sales very important but what about the Bush Administration’s push for life-time savings? Social Security Reform–boom or bust? Will it be like 529—small accounts with high activity? • Proprietary firms fall on hard times and a review of the non-proprietary world ● Still more regulatory overhang—the whole sales process being picked apart, ”redemptions fees,” “hard 4:00 PM close” and “point of sale disclosure” ● Changing economics—no more directed brokerage, shelf-space payments continue with greater transparency and SEC wants to revise the “soft-dollar safe harbor” and payments from 12b-1 plans ● What impact will come with the arrival of “the post accumulation era”? How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 21
  • Distribution Channel Landscape Trends ● Advisors: a slow share gain – The pricing problem is being fixed – Investing is if anything getting more complex and scary ● DC (other than advisors): a slow share gain – Powerful tax advantage ● Other institutional uses: a slow share loss – Corporate cash management not a high growth business – Bank trust departments – average to below average prospects ● Direct to investor: a mixed to declining share picture ● Supermarkets gain share (only slightly) of direct-to-investors ● Growth opportunities in capturing IRA rollover and affluent investor segments—watch out for LSA, RSA, ERSA—Social Security reform ● Flight to quality post-regulatory firestorm ● Signs that some groups are focusing on “retirement income” How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 22
  • Fee-Based Multi Manager Shift Over the next 10 years the major distribution channels (advisor and direct) will remain intact, but the transformation to fee-based, multi-manager packaging will be nearly completed (2/3 of assets) Likely implications: • Much of traditional load pricing formats will become vestigial appendages, increasingly jettisoned as firms rationalize products • Virtually no investment manager will have a “lock” on any segment, and the identity of the investor will largely be lost • Proprietary product lines will need to morph into multi-manager offerings or recede into the background • Sub-advisory arrangements will continue to gain share • Investment managers will increasingly need: – Clean, well defined, well supported investment products – Good records, risk adjusted and style-specific – Willingness to do business in any package How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 23
  • SEC and NASD Attack Sales Process SEC and NASD have been examining and attacking the sales process: • breakpoints, • what is the right class, • reducing the situations where B shares can be used, • concerned about the sales process involving variable insurance products • NASD bringing enforcement cases involving cash and non-cash comp How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 24
  • Pending Changes Impacting “Redemption Fees” and 4:00 PM Close • As a cornerstone of rule changes to eliminate “market timing” and “late trading” the SEC proposed two rules that have been widely criticized: – mandatory redemption fees – hard 4:00 PM close • The staff of the Division of Investment Management may recommend that the Commission adopt a much narrower requirement regarding redemption fees leaving it to the board to make sure that whatever policy the fund group has to restrict or eliminate market timing is enforced. • The concern is how to gain leverage to require intermediaries, especially those running omnibus accounts comply. It is clear that we need an effective deterrent to abusive market timing. How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 25
  • More On Proposed Hard 4:00 PM Close Here again the SEC is struggling to have a process in place to stop late trading. In response to the concerns expressed by commenters, the SEC staff is reviewing several issues: • the technological capabilities of retirement plan administrators and other service providers and fund intermediaries so that they can obtain a more complete understanding of the various systems issues and alternatives to the hard 4:00 PM close proposal. • the suggested approach of imposing procedures and controls on the acceptance and cancellation of fund trades combined with an independent audit of the procedures. • the extent to which there are tamper-proof time-stamping systems. How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 26
  • Point-of-Sale • SEC, concerned about sales practices and moving to greater transparency has proposed a “point-of-sale” disclosure requirement for three product areas: – mutual funds – variable insurance products – 529 products • The SEC proposal contained six samples, and the NASD’s comment letter contained an alternative disclosure document • This limited application of the point-of-sale disclosure could cause brokers to prefer other investments over mutual funds • Unclear how this will be adopted, but it goes to the new regulatory approach. It will be negative at first (first 18 months) but ultimately, the industry will find a way to move on. How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 27
  • Changing Economics of Distribution • SEC and NASD have outlawed directed brokerage for sales. • SEC and/or the NASD are instituting enforcement actions for failure to fully disclose the nature, level and method for paying for shelf-space—some significant settlements. • SEC is awaiting a special committee’s views on how to re-define what is included under the safe harbor under Section 28(e)—this will reduce the commission dollars. • SEC is awaiting the same special committee’s views on what should happen to distribution plans under Rule 12b-1. Any change will increase the direct payments to cover the cost of distribution payments. How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 28
  • Some “Unintended” Consequences • Things will change even though most don’t see it coming – Regulatory purgatory will not end for several more years • Need to address whether one fund fits all investors and all markets? – Need to determine whether the fund vehicle is the right choice—e.g., daily valued pooled • Platform providers (Schwab/Retirement) will want to try and keep the contact with customers – How will they be affected if hard 4:00 PM close is adopted? How to respond to the proposed mandatory redemption requirements? How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 29
  • Some “Unintended” Consequences (Cont.) • Costs will rise, forcing margins to fall, forcing consolidation of fund groups and products—greater use of indexation • Brokerage changes will impact advisors and brokerage firms • Point-of-sale disclosure will cause brokers to sell other products not impacted • If mutual fund product becomes marginalized, where will the investment talent go? SMA, Hedge, Private Equity, etc? • Significant new round of outsourcing will occur to cut costs • Margins shrink to those achieved by other service businesses?

  • Open Architecture Is a Permanent Phenomenon and Will Continue to Grow • Consumers enjoy real benefits from open architecture • Transparency assures that the best performing products are certified as such • Escalating intermediation of the supply chain assures that distributors have access to high performing product • New disclosures will show consumers exactly who they are paying, for what services • Fear of litigation and new compliance procedures will force disclosure of every possible conflict • After three to five years of transition • Distributors will enjoy long relationships with adequate margins and stable earnings • Manufacturers will have good margins on reduced revenues, from lean operations How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 36
  • Open Architecture Is a Permanent Phenomenon and Will Continue to Grow (Cont.) But during the transition years: • Performance will be absolutely essential – the only certain route to sales • Business practices and cost structures (insourcing vs. outsourcing) will undergo radical change • Transition costs will impinge on margins • Marketing costs will be high, as will retraining costs and fixed-facility write- downs It is likely that for the next two years at least: • Today’s public and private “pure play” firms will be better positioned • “Conglomerate” firms will struggle to redefine and restructure How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 37
  • Distributor or Producer? It’s a Hobson’s Choice Distribution and manufacturing have been identified as separate core competencies – firms with strong distribution need access to quality products but are questioning the rationale for owning the manufacturing capability. • Product providers are expanding product array. • Distributors moving toward open architecture. How Regulation is Changing Marketing, Sales November 11, 2004 and Distribution of Investment Products 38
  • Distributor or Producer? It’s a Hobson’s Choice (Cont.) Current players will need to choose between distribution and production. Most will pick distribution because of the perceived value of clients, but in either case the next few years will be very ugly: • There are many ways to win as a distributor, with diversified profits from an array of services, but the distribution choice requires: – A large array of capital, commodity or operational capabilities to underpin profitability. – Unconstrained asset management product choice in order to leverage relationships. – Easily disclosed fee structures and service partnerships to avoid conflict. – Shuttering mediocre products, unwinding bundled products and finding new providers. • Production margins can be more robust and reliable than distribution margins, but the production choice requires: – Obsessive product quality in an intermediate-horizon “investment culture.” – New proprietary research, trading and risk management infrastructure. – A global network of unaffiliated distribution partners and client service capabilities. – Shedding costs, pruning the lineup, rebuilding systems and sharpening incentives.
