Morgan Stanley Dean Witter

Permits purchases of securities in an underwriting where the plan’s fiduciary is affiliated with a manager of the underwriting syndicate. (This relief was excluded from PTCE 75-1, Part III.) The exemption expands PTCE 75-1 to cover certain transactions where the fiduciary is affiliated with the managing underwriter. In addition, the exemption permits the purchase of certain securities (including foreign securities) that do not have to be registered under federal securities laws. Further, to address the concern that plans could provide a ready market for the less attractive securities offerings of an affiliated underwriter, the exemption contains more extensive conditions than PTCE 75-1. To facilitate monitoring, the exemption requires that quarterly reports be provided to the independent fiduciary. Finally, in an effort to provide a better understanding of the market, the discussion of the proposed exemption explains the underwriting business in detail and cautions fiduciaries about the investment risks involved in IPOs, especially in situations where there is also a potential for a conflict of interest.
