U.S. SEC Focuses on Bank Fee Conflicts As It Steps Up SPAC Inquiry 

The U.S. securities regulator has ramped-up its inquiry on Wall Street’s blank check acquisition frenzy, homing in on potential conflicts of interest created when banks act as underwriters and advisers on the same deal, three people with direct knowledge of the matter told Reuters.

The SEC is exploring whether certain fee structures may incentivize underwriters on SPAC listings to secure unsuitable deals when also advising on the later stage merger, potentially putting investors at risk.

A valuation for the transaction hasn’t yet been finalized.
