30-Day Notice of Proposed Information Collection: Electronic Diversity Visa Entry Form, 41971-41972 [2013-16756]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 134 / Friday, July 12, 2013 / Notices mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES day decisions regarding liquidity of securities, may consider the following factors regarding liquidity: The frequency of trades and quotes for the security; the number of dealers wishing to purchase or sell the security and the number of other potential purchasers; dealer undertakings to make a market in the security; and the nature of the security and of the marketplace trades (e.g., the time needed to dispose of the security, the method of soliciting offers, and the mechanics of transfer).23 Ultimately, however, each Fund’s Board of Directors has responsibility for determining the liquidity of securities (including Rule 144A securities) held by the Funds. The Commission notes that the Adviser represents that each Fund’s holdings in Rule 144A securities deemed liquid by the Sub-Adviser will be part of an issuance with more than $100 million in principal outstanding. Finally, the Exchange has stated that the Adviser represents it does not expect that the proposed rule change will impede the ability of the Funds’ agent to calculate an NAV and an IIV and disseminate such IIV every 15 seconds throughout the trading day. The Commission further notes that pursuant to the 1940 Act and rules thereunder, the Funds are required to monitor their respective portfolio’s liquidity on an ongoing basis to determine whether, in light of current circumstances, an adequate level of liquidity is being maintained, and to consider taking appropriate steps in order to maintain adequate liquidity if through a change in values, net assets or other circumstances, more than 15% of the Fund’s net assets are held in illiquid securities. Thus, the Commission finds that providing the Adviser and Sub-Adviser additional flexibility with respect to investing in a larger percentage of investments in Rule 144A Securities, given the protections discussed above, is consistent with the Act. The Exchange also proposes to allow the Global Fund to invest up to 20% of its net assets in sovereign debt, which is defined as ‘‘debt securities of foreign governments.’’ 24 Given that the Global Fund will continue to have at least 80% of its net assets in Global Corporate Debt that are fixed income securities and the Fund’s limitation regarding non23 See Securities Act Release No. 6862 (April 23, 1990), 55 FR 17933, 17940 (April 30, 1990) (Resale of Restricted Securities; Changes to Method of Determining Holding Period of Restricted Securities Under Rules 144 and 145). See also supra, note 10. 24 Sovereign debt, according to the Exchange, enjoys a relationship to foreign governments that is not unlike that of Treasury debt securities and the U.S. government. See Notice, supra note 3. VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:46 Jul 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 investment grade securities, the Commission believes it is consistent with the Act for the Exchange to allow up to 20% of net assets of the Global Fund in sovereign debt. Finally, the Commission believes that it is consistent with the Act for the Exchange to amend the definition of Global Corporate Debt in the Global Fund and Corporate and QuasiSovereign Debt in the Emerging Markets Fund, as set forth in the Prior Approval Orders, to include (i) inflation-protected debt, fixed income securities and other debt obligations linked to inflation rates of local economies, and (ii) variable rate or floating rate securities which are readjusted on set dates (such as the last day of the month or calendar quarter) in the case of variable rates or whenever a specified interest rate change occurs in the case of a floating rate instrument. The Commission believes that this expansion of the definition is reasonable, given the characteristics of these securities, and would permit the Funds to invest in a broader range of market sectors, and thereby help further the Fund’s objectives to obtain both income and capital appreciation through direct and indirect investments in Global Corporate Debt or Corporate and Quasi-Sovereign Debt, as applicable, and other investments. Thus, the Commission finds this aspect of the proposal is consistent with the Act.25 Importantly, the Commission notes that the Shares will continue to be listed and traded on the Exchange pursuant to the initial and continued listing criteria in NASDAQ Rule 5735. In addition, the Adviser represents there is no change to either Fund’s investment objective, and except for the limited changes discussed herein, all other facts represented and representations made in the Rule 19b– 4 26 filings underlying the Prior Approval Orders, and representations and findings set forth in the Prior Approval Orders, remain unchanged. The Exchange represents that the changes proposed would be consistent with the Exemptive Order 27 and the 1940 Act and rules thereunder. This approval order is based on the Exchange’s representations. IV. Conclusion For the foregoing reasons, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 25 See, e.g., Securities Act Release Nos. 65458 (September 30, 2011), 76 FR 62112 (October 6, 2011) (SR–NYSEArca–2011–54) and 64935 (July 20, 2011), 76 FR 44966 (July 27, 2011) (SR–NYSEArca– 2011–31). 26 17 CFR 240.19b–4. 27 See supra, note 5.

It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,29 that the proposed rule change (SR–NASDAQ– 2013–079), as modified by Amendment No. 1 thereto, be, and it hereby is, approved.
