What is SEC Form 487
SEC Form 487 is a filing with the SEC, also known as the Pre-Effective Pricing Amendments Form, used to amend information in a previously filed Form S-6. Form S-6 is for Unit Investment Trust Registration. The information required on SEC Form 487 is the same as required on as the initial Form S-6, including management company info, risks, costs and portfolio objectives.
BREAKING DOWN SEC Form 487
SEC Form 487 is used to make amendments prior to the actual issuance of a Registered Investment Trust. Often the amendments made to the original SEC Form S-6 are simply additions of information that was not available at the time of the initial filing. To help identify changes, SEC Form 487 usually contains a "Memorandum of Change" that outlines what changes have been made.
