In the Matter of Massachusetts Financial Services Co. et al.
Dissent of Commissioner Cynthia A. Glassman
I concur in the Commission's settlement with Massachusetts Financial Services. However, I dissent from the settlements with Messrs. Ballen and Parke. Given their respective positions, including Chief Executive Officer and President of Massachusetts Financial Services, I believe that the terms of the settlements with Messrs. Ballen and Parke were not strong enough.
