Washington, D.C.–(Newsfile Corp. – June 3, 2019) – The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced an award of $3 million to whistleblowers whose tip launched the SEC’s investigation of and subsequent successful enforcement action involving an alleged securities law violation that impacted retail investors. The whistleblowers submitted their tip jointly to the Commission and will share the award.  In this case, the whistleblowers also undertook significant and timely steps to have their employer remediate the harm caused by the alleged violations.

“These whistleblowers showed great tenacity by repeatedly reporting internally and advocating for the firm to disclose the violative conduct and remedy the attendant investor harm,” said Jane Norberg, Chief of the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower.  “Their critical information and assistance helped the SEC bring an important enforcement action aimed at protecting retail investors.”
