Reciprocal Dealings or Shelf Space

Overview

Broker-dealers are prohibited from pushing the sales of particular funds (sometimes called providing "shelf space") in return for the funds directing business back to the broker-dealer. This is another example of an anti-bribery rule. Here, the intent is both to prevent broker-dealers from pushing the sales of certain funds to their customers in order to generate execution business and to prevent investment companies from directing their securities transactions to certain broker-dealers in order to generate fund sales.
