posted in: SEC Examinations | 0

The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that Enforcement Director Robert Khuzami will leave the agency after nearly four years of leadership. During Mr. Khuzami’s tenure, the Enforcement Division filed scores of significant actions connected to the financial crisis and brought record numbers of cases involving insider trading and misconduct by investment advisers and investment companies.

Among other accomplishments under Mr. Khuzami’s leadership, the Enforcement Division filed its most-ever cases in fiscal years 2011 and 2012 following the most significant restructuring in agency history that streamlined procedures and expedited investigations.
