BOSTON - The SEC's fact-finding examinations of the securities execution practices of mutual funds are unlikely to result in a public report, said Edward A. Ryan, Jr., assistant district administrator for regulation in the SEC's Boston office. It is unclear how the SEC will use the data gathered from the exams, he said. The SEC could issue a statement discussing execution practices or it could propose a rule, he said.

Ryan made his comments during the National Investment Company Service Association's second annual mutual fund compliance conference here recently.
