Washington, DC – The Board of Directors of the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board (MSRB) will meet on January 24-25, 2024, holding the second meeting of fiscal year 2024 to advance its FY 2022-2025 Strategic Plan.

Annual Rate Card

The Board will discuss comments received in response to the MSRB’s 2024 rate card filing with the SEC, establishing market activity fees and the municipal advisor fee for the 2024 calendar year. The MSRB’s new rate card process annually adjusts rates assessed on regulated entities to ensure a timelier return of any excess revenue (i.e., surplus) to regulated entities and to better manage the organization’s reserve funds.

Market Regulation

The Board will consider whether to modernize MSRB Rule G-27, on dealer supervision, to reflect changing work patterns since the COVID-19 pandemic and to further harmonize MSRB dealer supervisory requirements with FINRA supervisory rules.

The Board also will receive an update on industry input on its request for comment on draft amendments to MSRB Rule G-12(c) to consolidate existing guidance on certain inter-dealer confirmations requirements into a single streamlined rule provision.

Additionally, the Board will continue its discussions on a potential pre-trade market transparency initiative.
