Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 243 / Monday, December 21, 2009 / Notices transactions in securities. Quotation and last-sale information for the Shares will be available via the Consolidated Tape Association (‘‘CTA’’) high-speed line, and the Portfolio Indicative Value (‘‘PIV’’) will be disseminated at least every 15 seconds during the Core Trading Session by one or more major market data vendors. In addition, the Trust will disclose on its Web site on each business day the identities and quantities of the portfolio of securities and other assets (‘‘Disclosed Portfolio’’) held by the Fund that will form the basis for its calculation of the net asset value (‘‘NAV’’), which will be determined at the end of the business day. The Fund’s Web site will also include additional quantitative information updated on a daily basis relating to prices and NAV. Information regarding the market price and volume of the Shares will be continually available on a real-time basis throughout the day via electronic services, and the previous day’s closing price and trading volume information for the Shares will be published daily in the financial sections of newspapers. The Commission further believes that the proposal is reasonably designed to promote fair disclosure of information that may be necessary to price the Shares appropriately and to prevent trading when a reasonable degree of transparency cannot be assured. The Commission notes that the Exchange will obtain a representation from the Fund that the NAV per Share will be calculated daily and that the NAV and the Disclosed Portfolio will be made available to all market participants at the same time.12 Additionally, if it becomes aware that the NAV or the Disclosed Portfolio is not disseminated daily to all market participants at the same time, the Exchange will halt trading in the Shares until such information is available to all market participants.13 Further, if the PIV is not being disseminated as required, the Exchange may halt trading during the day in which the disruption occurs; if the interruption persists past the day in which it occurred, the Exchange will halt trading no later than the beginning of the trading day following the interruption.14 The Exchange represents 12 See NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600(d)(1)(B). NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600(d)(2)(D). 14 Id. Trading in the Shares may also be halted because of market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in the Shares inadvisable. These may include: (1) The extent to which trading is not occurring in the securities comprising the Disclosed Portfolio and/ or the financial instruments of the Fund; or (2) whether other unusual conditions or circumstances detrimental to the maintenance of a fair and orderly market are present. that the Fund’s investment manager has implemented a ‘‘fire wall’’ between it and its broker-dealer affiliate with respect to access to information concerning the composition and/or changes to the Fund’s portfolio.15 Further, the Commission notes that the Reporting Authority that provides the Disclosed Portfolio must implement and maintain, or be subject to, procedures designed to prevent the use and dissemination of material non-public information regarding the actual components of the portfolio.16 The Exchange has deemed the Shares to be equity securities subject to the Exchange’s rules governing the trading of equity securities. In support of this proposal, the Exchange has made representations, including: (1) The Shares will conform to the initial and continued listing criteria under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600. (2) The Exchange’s surveillance procedures are adequate to properly monitor Exchange trading of the Shares in all trading sessions and to deter and detect violations of Exchange rules and applicable Federal securities laws. (3) Prior to the commencement of trading, the Exchange will inform its ETP Holders in an Information Bulletin of the special characteristics and risks associated with trading the Shares. Specifically, the Information Bulletin will discuss the following: (a) The procedures for purchases and redemptions of Shares and that Shares are not individually redeemable; (b) NYSE Arca Equities Rule 9.2(a), which imposes a duty of due diligence on its ETP Holders to learn the essential facts relating to every customer prior to trading the Shares; (c) the risks involved in trading the Shares during the Opening and Late Trading Sessions when an updated PIV will not be calculated or publicly disseminated; (d) how information regarding the PIV is disseminated; (e) the requirement that ETP Holders deliver a prospectus to investors purchasing newly issued Shares prior to or concurrently with the confirmation of a transaction; and (f) trading information. (4) The Funds will be in compliance with Rule 10A–3 under the Act. (5) The Funds will not invest in nonU.S. equity securities. erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with NOTICES 13 See VerDate Nov<24>2008 14:14 Dec 18, 2009 Jkt 220001 15 The Exchange also represents that neither RiverPark Advisors, LLC nor Cohanzick Management, LLC, the Fund’s sub-advisers, have broker-dealer affiliates, and that any additional Fund sub-advisers that are affiliated with a brokerdealer will be required to implement a fire wall with respect to such broker-dealer regarding access to information concerning the composition and/or changes to the portfolio. 16 See NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600(d)(2)(B)(ii). PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67945 This approval order is based on the Exchange’s representations. For the foregoing reasons, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with the Act and the rules and regulations thereunder applicable to a national securities exchange. The Commission finds good cause, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,17 for approving the proposal prior to the thirtieth day after the date of publication of the Notice in the Federal Register. The Commission notes that it has approved the listing and trading on the Exchange of shares of other actively managed exchange-traded funds based on a portfolio of securities,18 including other series of the Grail Advisors ETF Trust,19 and that the proposed rule change does not raise any novel regulatory issues. The Commission also notes that it has received no comments regarding the proposed rule change, and believes that accelerating approval of this proposal should benefit investors by creating, without undue delay, additional competition in the market for Managed Fund Shares. III. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,20 that the proposed rule change (SR–NYSEArca– 2009–103) be, and it hereby is, approved on an accelerated basis. For the Commission, by the Division of Trading and Markets, pursuant to delegated authority.21 Florence E. Harmon, Deputy Secretary. [FR Doc.

    I. The information collection below is pending at SSA. SSA will 
submit it to OMB within 60 days from the date of this notice. To be 
sure we consider your comments, we must receive them no later than

    1. Claimant Statement about Loan of Food or Shelter; Statement 
about Food or Shelter Provided to Another--20 CFR 416.1130-416.1148--
0960-0529. SSA uses Forms SSA-5062 and SSA-L5063 to obtain statements 
about food and/or shelter provided to SSI claimants or recipients. SSA 
uses this information to determine whether food and/or shelter are bona 
fide loans or should be counted as income for SSI purposes. This 
determination can affect a claimant's or recipient's eligibility for 
SSI and the amount of SSI payments. The respondents are claimants and 
recipients of SSI payments and individuals who provide food or shelter 
loans to them.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
    Number of Respondents: 131,080.
    Frequency of Response: 1.
    Average Burden Per Response: 10 minutes.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 21,846 hours.

financial institution outside the United States. SSA uses Form SSA-1199 
to obtain the direct deposit information for an account at a foreign 
financial institution. Routing account number information varies 
slightly for each foreign country, so we use a variation of the 
Department of Treasury's Form SF-1199A for each country. The

    1. Authorization for the Social Security Administration to Obtain 
Account Records from a Financial Institution and Request for Records--
20 CFR 416.200, 416.203--0960-0293. Individuals must authorize 
financial institutions to disclose records to SSA by signing an SSA-
4641-U2. Financial institutions use the form to provide financial 
information to SSA. We need the information if an individual's records 
are incomplete, unavailable, or appear altered. SSA must verify the 
existence, ownership, and value of accounts of SSI applicants, 
recipients, and deemors. We use the financial institution's report, in 
part, to determine whether the respondent meets SSI resource 
eligibility requirements. The respondents are SSI applicants',

    This is a correction notice: SSA is updating burden information for 
this collection initially published at 74 FR 39728 on August 7, 2009.
    2. The Ticket to Work and Self-Sufficiency Program--20 CFR 411-- 
0960-0644. Through its Ticket to Work Program Manager, SSA uses the 
information to operate and manage the Ticket to Work Program. SSA uses 
the Ticket to Work Program to assign Social Security Disability 
Insurance (SSDI) or SSI recipients to a service provider and follows 
their progress through the various stages of ticket program 
participation, such as progress reviews or changes in ticket status. 
Most of the collections in this information collection request (ICR) 
require service providers to provide information to SSA for such tasks 
as selecting a payment system or requesting payments for helping the 
beneficiary achieve certain work goals. Most of the categories of 
information in this ICR are necessary for SSA to: (1) Comply with the 
Ticket to Work legislation; and (2) provide proper oversight of the 
program. SSA collects this information through several modalities, 
including forms, electronic exchanges, and written documentation. The 
respondents are SSDI beneficiaries and blind or disabled SSI recipients 
and their employment networks, or State vocational rehabilitation 
agencies assigned under the auspices of the Ticket to Work Program.
    Correction Notice: Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved 
information collection.

    3. Non-Attorney Representative Demonstration Project Application--
20 CFR 404.1745-404.1799 and 20 CFR 416.1545-416.1599--0960-0699. 
Section 303 of the SSPA provides for a 5-year demonstration project 
under which SSA extends the direct payment of approved fees to certain 
non-attorney claimant representatives. Under the SSPA, to be eligible 
for direct payment of fees, a non-attorney representative must fulfill 
the following statutory requirements: (1) Possess a bachelors degree or 
have equivalent qualifications from training and work experience; (2) 
pass an examination that tests knowledge of the relevant provisions of 
the Social Security Act; (3) secure professional liability insurance or 
equivalent insurance; (4) pass a criminal background check; and (5) 
demonstrate completion of relevant continuing education courses. 
Through the services of a private contractor, SSA must collect the 
requested information to determine if a non-attorney representative has 
met the statutory requirements to be eligible for direct payment of 
fees for his or her claimant representation services. SSA needs this 
information to comply with the legislation. The respondents are non-
attorney representatives who apply for direct payment of fees.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
    Number of Respondents: 700.
