SEC Announces Meeting Regarding Foreign Security-Based Swap Dealers and Executive Compensation Disclosure

The SEC issued a notice in the Federal Register announcing that it will hold an open meeting on April 29, 2015 to discuss (i) foreign security-based swap dealers and (ii) executive compensation rulemaking.

Specifically, meeting attendees will consider:

  • whether to propose amendments and repropose a rule under the Exchange Act concerning the requirements for a security-based swap transaction connected with a non-U.S. person’s dealing activity that is arranged, negotiated or executed by personnel located in a U.S. branch or office or in the U.S. branch or office of an agent; and
  • whether to propose amendments under Exchange Act Section 14(i) that would require registrants to clearly disclose the relationship between executive compensation actually paid and the financial performance of the registrant.
