Why should you attend SEC Regulation Outside the United States?

Transactions outside the United States are not necessarily beyond U.S. financial services regulators’ reach. The SEC makes a habit of scrutinising global activities – such as public offerings, private placements and takeovers – where there is U.S. investor involvement. The regulator also keeps a close eye on non-U.S. companies trading in U.S. securities and the activities of certain foreign investment managers. The SEC actively cooperates with its global counterparts and takes enforement action where appropriate.

Approximately 1,200 non-U.S. companies are SEC-registered and file reports with the regulator. Hundreds of other entities furnish the SEC with information supplying exemption, free from continuing obligation requirements and Sarbanes-Oxley.

As the world’s largest financial market, tens of thousands of non-U.S. persons, investors, companies and advisers trade in U.S. securities. Globally, exchanges share information.
