Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)

The US Securities and Exchange Commission is known by the initials SEC. It was established as a separate governmental organization on June 6th, 1934. With a concentration on the American securities markets, the SEC oversees and regulates the financial markets (e.g., stocks and bonds). SEBI is the SEC’s equivalent in India.

The SEC was established to ensure that all investors and traders have equal access to pertinent information before purchasing or trading financial assets. As a result, the SEC’s work makes sure that dealers, exchanges, and brokers treat investors fairly.

Additionally, the SEC drafted legislation requiring public corporations to disclose all pertinent financial data to the public. As a result, prior to making investment decisions, all types of investors have access to the same information.
