Mutual funds can opt to use “swing pricing” beginning November 2018. While swing pricing - adjusting a fund’s net asset value to pass transaction costs to transacting shareholders - has been used for several years in Europe, there are significant operational and regulatory considerations for implementing swing pricing for U.S. mutual funds. Fund boards are responsible for approving a fund’s swing pricing policy, designating a swing pricing administrator, and overseeing the policy’s implementation. Fatima Sulaiman of K&L Gates will discuss the goals of swing pricing and how it works in practice, the board’s responsibilities under the swing pricing rule, operational challenges, and considerations for implementing swing pricing.
