Global securities enforcement activity stepping up to meet new market challenges

The marked increase in global enforcement activities by regulators in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the European Union are attempts to give teeth to the global financial reforms each jurisdiction felt necessary to potentially prevent a "repeat" of the financial crisis.

This white paper seeks to address the increase in global securities enforcement activity. It concludes that continued co-operation and co-ordination in enforcement activities will be required to seamlessly address the desire to strengthen global regulatory initiatives aimed at harmonising and centralising international securities regulation to create safer, more fundamentally sound financial markets for investors.
