SEC updates EDGAR on Jan. 3, 2023, for Form 13F changes

Overview

On Jan. 3, 2023, the SEC updated the EDGAR system to implement changes related to Form 13F, which is filed by Institutional Investment Managers. This follows the SEC adopting a new final rule on June 23, 2022 to mandate the electronic filing of confidential treatment requests on Form 13F and implement content changes to 13F submissions.


The SEC requires Form 13F to be filed by Institutional Investment Managers with a minimum of $100 million in assets under management. This report discloses equity holdings and must be filed within 45 days following the conclusion of every quarter. Mandated by Congress, Form 13F was started in 1975 to boost investor confidence in public companies. To this day, investors often look at these filings to help inform their own investment strategies. 

It is critical for 13F filers to be prepared for these new technical requirements, including the cover and information table changes.

SEC Form 13F changes impact period ending Dec. 21, 2022 filings due by Feb. 13, 2023

Information Table updates for 13F-HR (Holdings Report) and 13F-CTR (Confidential Treatment Request):

Information Table Updates (1)
  • In Column 3, a new column labeled FIGI is included adjacent to CUSIP

  • In Column 4, the value being calculated at the close of trading on the last trading day of the calendar year or quarter, as appropriate, must be updated to reflect the value to the nearest dollar
    • This is a change from the previous requirement which allowed rounding to the nearest dollar in thousands
    • In connection with this requirement, the SEC increased the character limitation from 12 digits to 16 digits
    • The total on the Summary Page will also be listed in the nearest dollar
