I am struggling to find any source from where I can get 13-f filings before 2000s. EDGAR is mostly after 1999. Does any one know a good source? Thanks in advance!
- Thomson Reuters has 13f filing data. I don't know the best way to get it from them. (If you're an academic, you can use Wharton Research Data Services if your school is a subscriber.)
- Section 13f didn't exist before 1975. I'm guessing you'll find that SEC rule 13f-1 which requires the 13f filing wasn't operational until the 1980s.
- For example, see page 26705 of volume 43 of the Federal Register from 1978 which describes rule 13f-1.
