On November 23rd, the SEC published its Strategic Plan for fiscal years 2022 to 2026 in accordance with the Government Performance and Results Modernization Act of 2010 (Act). Under the Act federal agencies are required to outline their missions, planned initiatives, and strategic goals for a period of four years.
The SEC’s new Strategic Plan summarizes and further establishes the agency’s three main objectives:
protect investors against fraud, manipulation, and misconduct
develop and modernize rule sets that follow evolving markets, business models, and technologies
support a highly skilled and diverse workforce that is fully equipped to advance agency objectives and serve investors and capital-raising entrepreneurs
The plan is intended to continue the SEC’s goals of fighting against fraud, maintaining a robust and relevant regulatory framework, and sustaining a skilled and diverse workforce to serve America’s investors and capital-raising entrepreneurs alike.
