  • Whistleblowers A whistleblower is any individual providing the SEC with original information related to a possible violation of federal securities law.  The Dodd-Frank Act established a whistleblower program that enables the SEC to reward individuals who voluntarily provide such information.
  • Nothing but the Best Execution Along with the many other fiduciary obligations owed by RIAs, firms owe a duty to seek best execution of clients’ transactions.  If they fail to do, RIAs violate Section 206 of the Investment Advisers Act.

The House of Representatives on Tuesday approved by a vote of 271-158, another short-term continuing resolution (CR) to fund the government until April 8. The Senate is due to take up, and likely pass, the CR later this week.

This short-term funding extension to prevent a government shutdown is a holdover while congressional negotiations continue on a long-term plan to keep the government running through the end of the fiscal year, which ends on September 30.
