Lumesis, Inc.'s Whitepaper Focuses On The Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board's ("MSRB") Proposed Rule G-47 ("G-47") And Its Significance On Time Of Trade Disclosure Obligation To The Retail Investor For Municipal Bonds.

Lumesis, the firm behind the DIVER suite of municipal market focused software solutions, has released a whitepaper on proposed regulation around time of trade disclosure to the retail client. The report focuses on the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board’s (“MSRB”) Proposed Rule G-47 (“G-47”) and its significance on Time of Trade Disclosure Obligation to the retail investor for municipal bonds.  G-47 was submitted to the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for approval on September 18, 2013. SEC action is expected sometime between early November and year-end 2013.

This whitepaper, written by Lumesis’ CEO and co-founder, Gregg Bienstock, chronicles the basis for G-47 and provides insight into how market participants can meet these regulatory requirements and stay ahead of the curve in these volatile times. The report also examines a proposed amendment to the suitability rule (MSRB Rule G-19), which directly incorporates the language of the Time of Trade Disclosure rule.

“Market participants continue to express uncertainty around the ‘what’, ‘when’ and ‘how’ pertaining to disclosure. G-47 paves the path for a clearer understanding of the time of trade disclosure requirements,” said Bienstock. “At a time when protection of the retail investor continues to be a priority, the Proposed Rule, which we expect to be approved by the SEC, should be a catalyst for market participants to revisit their existing policies and procedures to ensure they are not exposed to unnecessary risk.”

DIVER Advisor, Lumesis’ patent pending technology, was designed and developed by Lumesis to meet Time of Trade Disclosure obligations and provide value-added portfolio monitoring and information delivery resources. Lumesis has been bringing technological advancement to the municipal market since 2010. “Our Advisor platform allows our clients to leverage our database and address regulatory needs in an efficient and cost-effective way. We developed our software in a highly scalable and customizable way all the while asking market participants, members of the legal community and FINRA, for guidance to ensure we deliver the ideal solution.”
