The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The MSRB filed with the Commission a proposed rule change consisting of proposed amendments to the MSRB Rule G–14 RTRS Procedures, and the Real-Time Transaction Reporting System and subscription service (collectively, the ‘‘proposed rule change’’). The MSRB is proposing that 1 15 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:59 Mar 26, 2015 Jkt 235001 the effective date for the proposed rule change be no later than May 23, 2016 and announced by the MSRB in a notice published on the MSRB Web site no later than sixty (60) days prior to the effective date. The text of the proposed rule change is available on the MSRB’s Web site at www.msrb.org/Rules-andInterpretations/SEC-Filings/2015Filings.aspx, at the MSRB’s principal office, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the MSRB included statements concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The MSRB has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose MSRB Rule G–14, on reports of sales or purchases, requires brokers, dealers and municipal securities dealers (collectively ‘‘dealers’’) to report all executed transactions in municipal securities to RTRS within 15 minutes of the time of trade, with limited exceptions.3 RTRS serves the dual objectives of price transparency and market surveillance. Because a comprehensive database of transactions is needed for the surveillance function of RTRS, Rule G–14, with limited exceptions, requires dealers to report all of their purchase-sale transactions to RTRS, not only those that qualify for public dissemination to serve the transparency function of the system.4 The MSRB makes transaction data available to the general public through 3 Transactions in securities without CUSIP numbers, in municipal fund securities, and certain inter-dealer securities movements not eligible for comparison through a clearing agency are the only transactions exempt from the reporting requirements of Rule G–14. 4 In this respect, RTRS serves as an audit trail for municipal securities trading, with the exception of certain internal movements of securities within dealers that currently are not required to be reported, customer identifications, and other related specific items of information. Compare Consolidated Audit Trail, Release No. 34–67457 (July 18, 2012), 77 FR 45722 (August 1, 2012), File No. S7–11–10. PO 00000 Frm 00108 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Electronic Municipal Market Access (‘‘EMMA’’) Web site at no cost, and disseminates such data through paid subscription services to market data vendors, institutional market participants and others that subscribe to the data feed. As more fully described below, the proposed rule change would enhance the post-trade price transparency information provided through RTRS by: • Expanding the application of the existing list offering price and takedown indicator to cases involving distribution participant dealers and takedown transactions that are not at a discount from the list offering price; • eliminating the requirement for dealers to report yield on customer trade reports and, instead, enabling the MSRB to calculate and disseminate yield on customer trades; • establishing a new indicator for customer trades involving nontransaction-based compensation arrangements; and • establishing a new indicator for alternative trading system (‘‘ATS’’) transactions. Expanding the Application of Existing List Offering Price and RTRS Takedown Indicator Transaction reporting procedures require dealers that are part of the underwriting group for a new issuance of municipal securities to include an indicator on trade reports, which indicator is disseminated to the public, for transactions executed on the first day of trading in a new issue with prices set under an offering agreement for the new issue. These transactions include sales to customers by a sole underwriter, syndicate manager, syndicate member or selling group member at the published list offering price for the security (‘‘List Offering Price Transaction’’) or by a sole underwriter or syndicate manager to a syndicate or selling group member at a discount from the published list offering price for the security (‘‘RTRS Takedown Transaction’’). Such trade reports are provided an end-of-day exception from Rule G–14’s general 15-minute reporting requirement. Since the introduction of the List Offering Price Transaction indicator in 2005 and RTRS Takedown Transaction indicator in 2007, certain market practices in this area have evolved. First, outside of traditional underwriting syndicates or selling groups, some dealers have entered into long-term marketing arrangements with other dealers that serve in the syndicate or selling group relating to purchases and re-sales of new issue securities E:\FR\FM\27MRN1.SGM 27MRN1
