Securities Regulations To Watch In 2024 (Law360)


Since the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission plans to propose and finalize a litany of regulations in 2024, attorneys told Law360 they'll be closely watching measures affecting private funds; equity markets; and environmental, social and governance matters and more. Here are some of the top securities regulations to keep an eye on in 2024. Nick Losurdo, a Financial Services partner who counsels broker-dealers on SEC regulations, said two major regulations on his radar are amendments to Exchange Act Rule 3b-16 to expand the scope of what an exchange is and the definition of a dealer to Law360. He said they're likely to be approved by the commission, and could end up requiring a "staggering" number of companies and software developers in the cryptocurrency and decentralized finance space to register as brokers or dealers with the SEC and the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
