ARK Invest Filing Gets Delay

According to the SEC’s update on the ARK Invest 21Shares filing, the agency now seeks a longer period for any action on the proposed rule change. Considering that the decision was due only on November 11, 2023, the delay decision came in relatively early and just in time before the SEC Chair Gary Gensler hearing before the Financial Services Committee later on September 27, 2023.

A message from the SEC on ARK Invest filing reportedly said,

“Notice of Designation of a Longer Period for Commission Action on Proceedings to determine whether to approve or disapporve a proposed rule change.”
