This article reports on the plan of the U.S. Securities anti Exchange Commission (SEC) to issue a guidance on how compliance conflicts can be avoided when institutional investors pay brokers for services that are unbundled from execution costs. It is noted that the guidance could help resolve issues around commission-sharing arrangements (CSAs). According to Robert Plaze, associate director at the SEC, the issue the agency plans to address involves payments by institutional investors directly to brokers for their services.
