New extensions on ADV filings, brochure delivery date and other regulatory dates, including Form PF, have been further extended by the SEC. FrontLine’s Founder and President, Amy Lynch, states that the new extensions granted by the SEC as emergency relief stemming from the COVID-19 crisis, all have a similar extended time frame. Ms. Lynch comments that there is at least a 45-day extension from the original due date unless a new date has been named, and the SEC has waived the requirement for a firm to explain why the extension is needed. However, a firm must notify the SEC by email that it will use the extensions available, and its website will need to be updated to disclose to clients that it is relying upon the exemption.
