This chapter focuses on the trade association for the mutual fund industry, the Investment Company Institute. Membership in the association is almost universal: just about every sponsor of mutual funds, closed-end funds, unit investment trusts, and exchange-traded funds, as well as the funds themselves, are members of the association. The institute has a long history of supporting government regulation of the investment company industry. The institute has also adopted a series of best practices that go well beyond law and regulation.
