In Spring 2010 ALFI reconvened a swing pricing working group, comprising members active in a broad spectrum of activities including auditors, fund promoters, asset managers, lawyers and third-party administrators. The primary goal set by the chairman was to review, and if necessary update, guidance issued by ALFI in late 2006. To facilitate these goals, a survey has been commissioned to research what has happened in the industry since the publication of the original brochure.
