The SEC has modernized the requirements of Form 13F reporting. Filings in ASCII format are no longer accepted. The new format, XML, allows computers to efficiently scrutinize all aspects of Form 13F, including the holdings summary.

Submit the completed spreadsheet via email or the Compliance Management Portal to our team along with your filing instructions. Using proprietary software, Newsfile will generate the XML data for filing and an accompanying proof for your review.
Review the XML code and an HTML preview securely online. The HTML preview is based on the official SEC 13F template and reflects how it will appear once filed on the SEC web site. If filtering options are selected, review a report illustrating the adjustments our software made to information table data.
Provide your approval to file. Newsfile will submit the XML data to the SEC EDGAR system and provide you with an email acceptance message.

About Form 13F
Institutional investment managers who exercise investment discretion over $100 million or more in Section 13(f) securities must report their holdings on Form 13F with the SEC EDGAR system. Form 13F requires disclosure of the names of institutional investment managers, the names of the securities they manage and the class of securities, the CUSIP number, the number of shares owned, and the total market value of each security.
The securities that institutional investment managers must report on Form 13F are found on what is known as the Official List of Section 13(f) Securities. The Official List is published quarterly and is available for free on the SEC's website.
Form 13F-HR vs. Form 13F-NT
If all of your Section 13(f) securities are listed on your Form 13F, you are filing a 13F Holdings Report under Form type 13F-HR.
If some of your Section 13(f) securities are listed on your Form 13F and the rest of your Section 13(f) securities are listed on someone else's Form 13F, you are filing a 13F Combination Report under Form type 13F-HR.
If none of your Section 13(f) securities is listed on your Form 13F because all of your Section 13(f) securities are reported on someone else's Form 13F, you are filing a 13F Notice under Form type 13F-NT.
