2022 Agency Financial Report
Nov. 15, 2022
Message from the Chair
It is a privilege to work with the remarkable staff of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) executing our three-part mission to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation.
America’s capital markets affect all of us. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Congress understood that when, in the depths of the Great Depression, they enacted the first federal securities laws and created this agency.
