What if you documented every bad thing that your family did during the year, every grievance you looked into, every poor decision someone in the family made, and every family rule that was broken or even allegedly broken? Well, if you turned that document into a report and your family was the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission you’d have the “U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Office of Inspector General Semiannual Report to Congress.”
Misuse of parking permits, travel rule violations, misuse of government computers and resources to run a side photography business, alleged leaks of confidential information, intimidating behavior by managers, perjury allegations, inadequate procedures to prevent internal insider trading, sending inappropriate emails to co-workers spouses…you name it, it is in there!
The report also contains detailed summaries of the IG’s high-profile investigations in the Pequot/Aguirre and Bear Stearns matters.
