The Role of the Securities and Exchange Commission in a Changing World

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

On May 1st, 2015, at The Center for Strategic and International Studies, over sixty men and women from government, financial regulators, the private sector, and academia attended a day-long Assembly on "The Role of the SEC in a Changing World."   The event was inspired by --and in honor of --former SEC Chair and American Assembly director Roderick M. Hills.

Co-chaired and directed by former SEC chairs David S. Ruder, Harvey L. Pitt,  Mary Schapiro, and founding board member of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, Charles Niemeier, panels addressed issues on disclosure, enforcement, regulation of investment markets, and the role of the SEC both domestically and abroad.

SEC Chair Mary Jo White addressed the participants, and engaged in a Q&A with program chairs David S. Ruder and Harvey L. Pitt.  

The event was cosponsored with The Hills Program on Governance at CSIS, and the  Zicklin Center for Business Ethics Research at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. 

A report from the event is forthcoming.
