What is Reg FD
The Regulation Fair Disclosure, otherwise known as Reg FD, is a ruling of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) of 2000, according to which public companies must disclose important information regarding financial performance, market, competition, business principles, and other material information simultaneously for all shareholders and investors. The purpose of the Regulation Fair Disclosure is to prevent selective disclosure of information when large institutional investors receive market-moving information prior to other smaller individual investors. This regulation also prohibits the discriminatory provision of important investment information to certain securities market experts or shareholders who may benefit from this data.

The adoption of the Regulation Fair Disclosure was a response to the increasing prevalence of selective disclosure practiced in the 1990s. At that time, many companies provided key financial information, such as quarterly results, during conference calls and meetings, but did not make this information available to some shareholders, investors, and the general public.

In the 21st century, when investment businesses, financial institutions, and individual investors gained broad access to the Internet, and the emergence of online discount brokers allowed small investors to independently research and trade stocks, the Regulation Fair Disclosure helped to establish healthy and honest relationships between all parties involved. Thus, the regulation promotes more transparent, fair, and timely communication between companies and all investors.

Now, most businesses disclose their financial information in press releases, conference calls, webcasts, as well as on their websites. Moreover, in 2013, the SEC allowed companies to use social networks to share information if it does not contradict the Reg FD requirement to notify investors and provides unrestricted access.
