SEC Keeps up High Rate of Enforcement Activity — CFO

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission enforcement activity continued at a strong pace during the first half of fiscal 2017 despite the uncertainty hanging over the agency since President Donald Trump took office.

Between Oct. 1 and March 31, the SEC filed 334 total enforcement actions, compared to 372 during the same period in fiscal 2016, according to a new report from Cornerstone Research. But excluding actions against delinquent filers, there were 299 enforcement actions — virtually unchanged from the year-ago period.
