Regulatory Reporting Recap: N-PORT vs. N-CEN
Form N-PORT is an SEC filing that requires registered investment companies (RICs) to submit details of their portfolio holdings on a quarterly basis, along with monthly breakdowns. Form N-CEN, however is an annual SEC filing that requires RICs to report census-type information about their related counterparties such as brokers, transfer agents, pricing agents and directors. These two filings combine to make up the mandatory SEC reporting requirements of US-based RICs.
