Title: Proposed Amendment to Rule 17Ad-17; Transfer Agents', Brokers', and Dealers' Obligation To Search for Lost Securityholders 
Abstract: The Commission proposed amendments to Rule 17Ad-17 to implement the mandates of section 929W of the Dodd-Frank Act. That section requires (1) adding brokers and dealers to entities that must conduct database searches for lost security holders; and (2) requiring that "paying agents," which are persons that accept payments from the issuer of a security for distribution to a security holder, send written notification to a security holder who has been sent a check that has not been negotiated no later than 7 months after the check was sent.
