SEC Issues Joint Statement Relating to Complex Financial Products

30 Oct 2020

On October 28, 2020, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Chairman Jay Clayton, together with the directors of three SEC divisions, issued a joint statement relating to complex financial products. The statement relates to a fairly broad group of products, but addresses in particular a number of sophisticated leveraged and inverse structured products, including ETFs and exchang- traded notes (ETNs).

The joint statement is relatively brief, but addresses several potentially complex issues, which are discussed in our newsletter.
