The primary mission of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) is to protect investors and maintain the integrity of the securities markets. It does so by requiring public companies to disclose meaningful financial information to the public in a timely and comprehensive manner. Further, the SEC oversees and regulates key participants in the securities world, including stock exchanges, broker-dealers, investment advisors, and mutual funds.
   
FINRA provides investor protection and market integrity through regulation and compliance. FINRA registers all industry participants, examines securities firms, enforces FINRA rules and federal securities laws, and administers a dispute resolution forum for investors and member firms.
