The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted rules and form amendments that are designed to require mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) to transmit concise and visually engaging annual and semi-annual reports to shareholders. The updated approach to funds’ shareholder reports will highlight key information that is particularly important for retail investors to assess and monitor their fund investments.
The BBD client experience is not just a promise in a proposal.
At BBD, we survey our clients regularly. Monitoring and measuring the value of the BBD client experience on a consistent basis helps us to make improvements that have immediate impact.
