The SEC Targets Self-Regulation

Traders Magazine, November 2004

Gregory Bresiger

The Securities and Exchange Commission will soon be publishing an SRO concept release on the "inherent conflicts of self-regulation," according to Steve Williams, an economist in the division of market regulation. Williams said the release will also cover several other subjects, such as SRO funding. Another controversial subject will be "the inefficiencies of having multiple, sometimes conflicting regulators." It will also address the difficulties of intermarket regulation. "This requires the cooperation of people who are often competitors and who often do not like each other," Williams told the annual securities industry conference at New York's Pace University.
