(Reuters) – The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) said on Monday it will allow temporary flexibility to borrow and enter into certain other lending arrangements for registered investment companies affected by the coronavirus pandemic.
The temporary relief is to provide registered funds with additional tools to manage their portfolios as investors may seek to rebalance their investments, the SEC said. (https://bit.ly/3adI6CJ)
