Good afternoon. My name is Robert Khuzami, and I am proud to represent the men and women of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement as its Director.
On February 17, the SEC charged Allen Stanford and two of his associates with operating a massive fraud.
Thank you Myron [Kandel] for that kind introduction and for inviting me to speak here tonight.
Good morning and welcome. I would like to begin by thanking Secretary Hilda Solis, Deputy Secretary Seth Harris and their dedicated staff at the Department of Labor for hosting this event and working with the SEC staff to hold this joint hearing. I truly believe that investors will benefit from our productive collaboration.
Good morning. And, thank you Hans [Hoogervorst, Chairman, Authority for the Financial Markets, Netherland, and Vice Chair of the IOSCO Technical Committee] for that kind introduction.
