Last year $4.25 trillion was raised in public and private securities offerings, promoting economic growth and job creation.
We are the Investor’s Advocate
The SEC protects investors, promotes fair markets, and shares information to help investors make informed decisions and invest with confidence.
SEC in the Community
Our commitment to public service extends outside the office through volunteer work.
Our work helps strengthen the economy, create jobs, build communities, and secure financial futures.
Office of the Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation
SEC’s new Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation serves the interests of small businesses and their investors.
SEC Salutes our Veterans
We are proud that our workforce includes many veterans from each of the five armed services.
