The SEC has released its Draft 2022–2026 Strategic Plan for public comment. The plan is comprised of a draft of the SEC’s strategic goals, planned initiatives, mission, vision, and values. By introducing these goals, the SEC expects to continue to be a proficient, consistent presence in the evolving capital markets.
The SEC intends to implement these goals by:
improving the use of market and industry data to prevent, detect, and prosecute improper behavior
updating design, delivery, and content of disclosures to investors so they can access consistent, comparable, and material information while making investment decisions
The draft was developed in compliance with the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010, under which federal agencies must outline their missions, planned initiatives, and objectives for a four-year period.
The draft strategic plan sets forth three main objectives:
protecting working families against fraud, manipulation, and misconduct
supporting a skilled workforce that is diverse, equitable, inclusive, and is fully equipped to advance agency objectives
developing and implementing a robust regulatory framework that keeps pace with evolving markets, business models, and technologies
