A top U.S. regulator on Monday proposed the creation of a federal registry to make it easier for investors and law enforcement to dig up information on past financial fraud convictions and civil fines.

Christy Goldsmith Romero, a commissioner of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), said in remarks at a conference that she is pushing for U.S. regulators to create a searchable, centralized database of financial misconduct that could make it easier for the public to arm themselves against fraudsters.
