SEC awards $54M to two whistleblowers

September 6, 2018

The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced it is awarding $54 million to two whistleblowers, whose critical information and continued assistance helped the agency bring an enforcement action. One whistleblower will receive an award of $39 million—the second-largest award in the history of the SEC’s whistleblower program—and the second whistleblower will receive an award of $15 million.

“Whistleblowers serve as invaluable sources of information and can propel an investigation forward by helping us overcome obstacles and delays in investigation,” Jane Norberg, chief of the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower, said in a statement. “These substantial awards send a strong message about the SEC’s commitment to whistleblowers and the value they bring to the agency’s mission.”
