Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 241 / Friday, December 14, 2012 / Notices the NAV and the Disclosed Portfolio will be made available to all market participants at the same time.20 In addition, trading in the Shares will be subject to BATS Rule 14.11(i)(4)(B)(iv), which sets forth circumstances under which Shares of the Fund may be halted. The Exchange may halt trading in the Shares if trading is not occurring in the securities and/or the financial instruments comprising the Disclosed Portfolio of the Fund, or if other unusual conditions or circumstances detrimental to the maintenance of a fair and orderly market are present.21 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.22 The Exchange may obtain information via the Intermarket Surveillance Group (‘‘ISG’’) from other exchanges that are members or affiliates of ISG or with which the Exchange has entered into a comprehensive surveillance sharing agreement. The Exchange prohibits the distribution of material, non-public information by its employees. The Exchange also states that the Adviser and the Sub-Adviser are both affiliated with multiple broker-dealers and have both implemented fire walls with respect to such broker-dealer affiliates regarding access to information concerning the composition and/or changes to the Fund’s portfolio.23 20 See BATS Rule 14.11(i)(4)(A)(ii). BATS Rule 14.11(i)(4)(B)(iii) (providing additional considerations for the suspension of trading in or removal from listing of Managed Fund Shares on the Exchange). With respect to trading halts, the Exchange may consider other relevant factors in exercising its discretion to halt or suspend trading in the Shares of the Fund. Trading in Shares of the Fund will be halted if the circuit breaker parameters in BATS Rule 11.18 have been reached. Trading also may be halted because of market conditions or for reasons that, in the view of the Exchange, make trading in the Shares inadvisable. 22 See BATS Rule 14.11(i)(4)(B)(ii)(b). 23 See supra note 6. The Commission notes that an investment adviser to an open-end fund is required to be registered under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (‘‘Advisers Act’’). As a result, the Adviser and the Sub-Adviser and their related personnel are subject to the provisions of Rule 204A–1 under the Advisers Act relating to codes of ethics. This Rule requires investment advisers to adopt a code of ethics that reflects the fiduciary nature of the relationship to clients as well as compliance with other applicable securities laws. Accordingly, procedures designed to prevent the communication and misuse of non-public information by an investment adviser must be consistent with Rule 204A–1 under the Advisers Act. In addition, Rule 206(4)–7 under the Advisers Act makes it unlawful for an investment adviser to provide investment advice to clients unless such investment adviser has (i) adopted and mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with 21 See VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:41 Dec 13, 2012 Jkt 229001 74543 The Exchange represents that the Shares are deemed to be equity securities, thus rendering trading in the Shares subject to the Exchange’s existing rules governing the trading of equity securities. In support of this proposal, the Exchange has made representations, including: (1) The Shares will be subject to BATS Rule 14.11(i), which sets forth the initial and continued listing criteria applicable to Managed Fund Shares. (2) The Exchange has appropriate rules to facilitate transactions in the Shares during all trading sessions. (3) The Exchange’s surveillance procedures applicable to derivative products, which include Managed Fund Shares, 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. (4) Prior to the commencement of trading, the Exchange will inform its members in an Information Circular of the special characteristics and risks associated with trading the Shares. Specifically, the Information Circular will discuss the following: (a) The procedures for purchases and redemptions of Shares in Creation Units (and that Shares are not individually redeemable); (b) BATS Rule 3.7, which imposes suitability obligations on Exchange members with respect to recommending transactions in the Shares to customers; (c) how information regarding the Intraday Indicative Value is disseminated; (d) the risks involved in trading the Shares during the Pre-Opening and After Hours Trading Sessions when an updated Intraday Indicative Value will not be calculated or publicly disseminated; (e) a reminder that there may be periods of time during Regular Trading Hours during which the Intraday Indicative Value would be static to the extent securities that comprise the Fund’s holdings are not actively trading; (f) the requirement that members deliver a prospectus to investors purchasing newly issued Shares prior to or concurrently with the confirmation of a transaction; and (g) trading information. (5) For initial and/or continued listing, the Fund must be in compliance with Rule 10A–3 under the Exchange Act.24 (6) Consistent with the Exemptive Order, the Fund will not invest in options, swaps, or futures. The Fund’s investments will be consistent with its investment objective and will not be used to enhance leverage. The Fund will not invest in equity securities. (7) Countries must have at least $5 billion of outstanding debt principal amounts at the beginning of the calendar year in order to be included as an eligible investment. (8) The Fund expects that, under normal circumstances, the securities included in the Fund will be primarily investment grade. In addition, the Fund will not invest in distressed debt. (9) The Fund may hold up to an aggregate amount of 15% of its net assets in illiquid securities (calculated at the time of investment), including Rule 144A securities. (10) A minimum of 100,000 Shares of the Fund will be outstanding at the commencement of trading on the Exchange. This approval order is based on all of the Exchange’s representations and description of the Fund, including those set forth above and in the Notice.
