SEC Co-Director Discusses SEC Enforcement During COVID-19

Steven Peikin, Co-Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, recently discussed the SEC’s enforcement during COVID-19. Peikin indicates that the Division of Enforcement “have focused significant time and resources on responding to COVID-related matters. In organizing our response, we have looked to the experiences had, and the lessons learned, by our predecessors in other periods of emergency and serious market disruption, including the September 11 attacks and the 2007-08 global financial crisis.”

Topics discussed by Peikin included: (a) COVID-19 enforcement matters; and (b) ongoing non-COVID-19 work. Peikin expects there to be more trading suspensions related to COVID-19 and more fraud cases related to potential COVID-19 investment scams.
