    New Proposed Rule Would Give Non-Exclusive Safe Harbor from Broker Registration

    January 20, 2021
    On October 7, 2020, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) published a rule proposal to provide a safe harbor exemption permitting an individual acting as an unregistered broker or dealer, or “finder,” to engage in capital-raising activities on behalf of smaller private companies without registering as a broker-dealer. The SEC’s proposal (Release No. 34-90112; File No. S7-13-20) aims to address concerns that have been raised by small businesses when attempting to identify “finders” to engage potential investors while raising capital. In today’s capital markets, the SEC has not previously recognized a “finders” exemption or exception, nor has the SEC provided general guidance on “finders”, other than interpretive positions taken by the SEC staff in no-action letters, prompting some to observers to refer to the use of finders as the “gray market.”
