MetaMarket's will take disclosure issue to the people
From TheStreet.com
OpenFund is going to continue pushing for more frequent disclosure of fund information despite yesterday's decision by the Investment Company Institute's Rules Committee to retain the status quo and not amend its "Best Practices" recommendations. OpenFund is calling for monthly or quarterly disclosures with no more than a month delay, says Dave Nadig, comanager of the OpenFund. He adds that MetaMarkets.com, OpenFund's adviser, will pursue the issue with other ICI committees and to "take it to the streets" with a summer poll of investors. The ICI says that there was no move for more discussion on the issue at the meeting. MetaMarkets.com wrote an open letter to Mathew Fink, president of the group calling for more disclosure last month. Fink responded by inviting Nadig to the Rules Committee.
