On August 2nd, the SEC announced that the Form 13F Data Sets are now available for download. The Form 13F Data Sets provide the securities holding information required of institutional investment managers under Section 13(f) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The securities holding information is also made accessible to the public in structured Form 13F filings with the SEC. The data is extracted from the XML-based section of public Form 13F submissions made in the SEC’s EDGAR system.
To provide the public with easily accessible data from public 13F filings, the public data is presented in a flattened format and unchanged from the “as-filed” submissions. The Form 13F Data Sets are available for download on the SEC’s website.
The Form 13F and other publicly accessible data sets are available in the Data Library developed by the Division of Economic and Risk Analysis (DERA). The DERA Data Library provides the public with a central reference location to access all data sets that DERA makes available.
