Luis Aguilar: The Enforcement Commissioner

Commissioner Luis Aguilar joined the SEC in July 2008.  In his short time at the SEC, Aguilar has quickly positioned himself as the SEC Commissioner with the strongest interest in enforcement issues.  In several speeches over the past eight months, Aguilar has taken strong positions advocating changes in the enforcement program and even being critical of certain SEC policies and practices.

In his speech yesterday before the District of Columbia Bar (click here for the full text), Aguilar added to his growing series of speeches focusing on Enforcement issues, and offered several specific actions that he would like the SEC to take in order to “reinvigorate the SEC’s enforcement program.”  You can read my full summary and analysis of Aguilar’s speech in this post on my Enforcement Action blog over at Compliance Week.
