The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced an award of more than $18 million to a whistleblower whose information and assistance led to a successful SEC enforcement action.
After initially reporting misconduct internally, the whistleblower submitted information to the Commission that prompted the opening of an investigation. The whistleblower thereafter provided additional helpful information and substantial cooperation that saved the Commission time and resources during the investigation.
