ABSTRACT
The article reports on the recommendations of the National Association of Securities Dealers' Mutual Fund Task Force recommendations on soft dollars and disclosing portfolio transaction costs to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The task force has asked the SEC to narrow the types of research services that funds may obtain with soft dollars and to require them to disclose soft-dollar practices and portfolio transaction costs in fund prospectuses. The group also would like the SEC to spell out what kind of information about soft dollars that fund boards should review.
