INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'SEC Form 17-H'

Reporting and filing requirements of SEC form 17-H are covered under section 20 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The SEC tracks the filing status of all firms, but only reviews the 17-H form filings of six major dealers in detail under the program, because they have the highest number of customer accounts and therefore have been deemed "material firms."
