NYSIF CEO Submits SEC Comments

NYSIF Executive Director & CEO Gaurav Vasisht submitted a letter of support this week for the Securities and Exchange Commission's proposed rules for private funds under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. If adopted, the proposal would require private fund advisers to provide investors greater transparency into fees, expenses, and fund performance and prohibit them from engaging in certain activities that harm investors.

"Over the past decade, private funds have experienced explosive growth," said CEO Vasisht. "But as investor demand has soared, private market regulation has failed to keep pace. The SEC proposal takes an essential step to leveling the playing field and providing investors the information necessary to make informed investment decisions."

Coverage for Policyholders’ Out-of-State Work

Working with licensed carriers in other states, NYSIF will soon begin to provide workers' compensation coverage for policyholders’ out-of-state employees. A business must have an active NYSIF workers’ comp policy, have more workers’ comp premium or payroll in New York State than in all other states combined, and will be subject to NYSIF underwriting review to be eligible for NYSIF’s out-of-state coverage. NYSIF expects to begin to offer out-of-state coverage beginning in the summer of 2022.
