December 2017: Conflict Minerals: Section 1502 of Dodd-Frank

80 investors (with AUM of over $2 trillion) signed a letter which was delivered to the leadership of the House and Senate on December 21, 2017.  The statement urged the leadership to strongly oppose any language that would limit the SEC’s ability to implement the conflict minerals reporting requirements of Dodd-Frank. As a follow-up, we contacted the six Senators who wrote the SEC with the same message.  We have also been in conversations with the SEC about this matter.
