This practice area refers to the Investment Company Act of 1940, amended as ICA. This legislation, created in response to the stock market crash of 1929, defines the responsibilities and limitations put in place on mutual funds, unit investment trusts and closed-end funds offered by financial institutions to the public. The ICA is used to stabilize financial markets, and is regulated by the Security and Exchange Commission. This act also sets out limits regarding filings and service charges, financial disclosure and fiduciary duties of fund companies.
