The provisions the SEC has adopted that mirror elements in Fitzgerald's MFRA are:
This rule reflects the MFRA provision directing the SEC to study whether service on multiple boards can compromise a director's independence.
MFRA prohibits certain practices that give rise to unacceptable conflicts of interest -- including directed brokerage, soft-dollar arrangements, and revenue sharing.
Since Fitzgerald proposed MFRA with Senators Carl Levin (D-MI) and Susan Collins (R-ME) earlier this year, the measure has gained the endorsements of numerous consumer groups and industry leaders.
MFRA, among other things, would eliminate 12b-1 fees, as well as soft dollar, revenue sharing, and directed brokerage arrangements -- all of which, Fitzgerald explained, serve no reasonable business purpose and drive up costs for shareholders.
Other than 12b-1 fees, which MFRA bars, the bill does not regulate fees.
Since Fitzgerald, Levin, and Collins introduced MFRA in February, a bevy of consumer groups and industry leaders have also expressed support for the measure.
Importantly, MFRA does not prohibit distribution expenses or sales charges.
MFRA has three titles: Fund Governance, Fund Transparency, and Fund Transactions.
