Download as PDF 44406 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 143 / Monday, July 27, 2015 / Notices any fees paid to the Affiliated SubAdviser. 3. Applicants agree that any order granting the requested relief will be subject to the terms and conditions stated in the Application. Such terms and conditions provide for, among other safeguards, appropriate disclosure to Fund shareholders and notification about sub-advisory changes and enhanced Board oversight to protect the interests of the Funds’ shareholders. 4. Section 6(c) of the Act provides that the Commission may exempt any person, security, or transaction or any class or classes of persons, securities, or transactions from any provisions of the Act, or any rule thereunder, if such relief is necessary or appropriate in the public interest and consistent with the protection of investors and purposes fairly intended by the policy and provisions of the Act. Applicants believe that the requested relief meets this standard because, as further explained in the Application, the Advisory Agreements will remain subject to shareholder approval, while the role of the Sub-Advisers is substantially similar to that of individual portfolio managers, so that requiring shareholder approval of SubAdvisory Agreements would impose unnecessary delays and expenses on the Funds. Applicants believe that the requested relief from the Disclosure Requirements meets this standard because it will improve the Adviser’s ability to negotiate fees paid to the SubAdvisers that are more advantageous for the Funds. For the Commission, by the Division of Investment Management, under delegated authority. Robert W. Errett, Deputy Secretary.

The Commission plans to submit this existing collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) for extension and approval. Rule 17f–1(c) requires approximately 15,500 entities in the securities industry to report lost, stolen, missing, or counterfeit securities certificates to the Commission or its designee, to a registered transfer agent for the issue, and, when criminal activity is suspected, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Such entities are required to use Form X–17F–1A to make such reports. Filing these reports fulfills a statutory requirement that reporting institutions report and inquire about missing, lost, counterfeit, or stolen securities. Since these reports are compiled in a central database, the rule facilitates reporting institutions to access the database that stores information for the Lost and Stolen Securities Program. We estimate that 15,500 reporting institutions will report that securities are either missing, lost, counterfeit, or stolen annually and that each reporting institution will submit this report 30 times each year. The staff estimates that the average amount of time necessary to comply with Rule 17f–1(c) and Form X– 17F–1A is five minutes. The total burden is approximately 38,750 hours annually for respondents (15,500 times 30 times 5 divided by 60). Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information on respondents; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in writing within 60 days of this publication. Rule 17f–1(c) is a reporting rule and does not specify a retention period. The rule requires an incident-based reporting requirement by the reporting institutions when securities certificates are discovered to be missing, lost, counterfeit, or stolen. Registering under PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Rule 17f–1(c) is mandatory to obtain the benefit of a central database that stores information about missing, lost, counterfeit, or stolen securities for the Lost and Stolen Securities Program.

Proposed Collection; Comment Request

Upon Written Request, Copies Available From: Securities and Exchange 
Commission, Office of FOIA Services, 100 F Street NE., Washington, DC 
20549-2736.

Extension:
    Rule 17f-1(c) and Form X-17F-1A; SEC File No. 270-29, OMB 
Control No. 3235-0037

    Notice is hereby given that pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (``PRA'') (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the Securities and Exchange 
Commission (``Commission'') is soliciting comments on the existing 
collection of information provided for in Rule 17f-1(c) and Form X-17F-
1A (17 CFR 249.100) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (15 
U.S.C. 78a et seq.). The Commission plans to submit this existing 
collection of information to the Office of Management and Budget 
(``OMB'') for extension and approval.
    Rule 17f-1(c) requires approximately 15,500 entities in the 
securities industry to report lost, stolen, missing, or counterfeit 
securities certificates to the Commission or its designee, to a 
registered transfer agent for the issue, and, when criminal activity is 
suspected, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Such entities are 
required to use Form X-17F-1A to make such reports. Filing these 
reports fulfills a statutory requirement that reporting institutions 
report and inquire about missing, lost, counterfeit, or stolen 
securities. Since these reports are compiled in a central database, the 
rule facilitates reporting institutions to access the database that 
stores information for the Lost and Stolen Securities Program.
    We estimate that 15,500 reporting institutions will report that 
securities are either missing, lost, counterfeit, or stolen annually 
and that each reporting institution will submit this report 30 times 
each year. The staff estimates that the average amount of time 
necessary to comply with Rule 17f-1(c) and Form X-17F-1A is five 
minutes. The total burden is approximately 38,750 hours annually for 
respondents (15,500 times 30 times 5 divided by 60).
    Written comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall 
have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information on 
respondents; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of 
information on respondents, including through the use of automated 
collection techniques or other forms of information technology. 
Consideration will be given to comments and suggestions submitted in 
writing within 60 days of this publication.
    Rule 17f-1(c) is a reporting rule and does not specify a retention 
period. The rule requires an incident-based reporting requirement by 
the reporting institutions when securities certificates are discovered 
to be missing, lost, counterfeit, or stolen. Registering under Rule

stores information about missing, lost, counterfeit, or stolen 
securities for the Lost and Stolen Securities Program. Reporting 
institutions required to register under Rule 17f-1(c) will not be kept 
confidential; however, the Lost and Stolen Securities Program database 
will be kept confidential.
    An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required 
to respond to, a collection of information under the PRA unless it 
displays a currently valid OMB control number.
