Priorities for the Securities and Exchange Commission
The current SEC has signaled an ambitious agenda to fulfill its mission to protect corporate investors and ensure the smooth and efficient functioning of the capital markets.

The impacts of such improvements trickle to other company stakeholders as well, including workers, suppliers, consumers, and frontline communities. The priorities outlined here for the SEC are important to these ends.
