US SEC enforcement garnered nearly $5 billion in financial remedies last year

NEW YORK, Nov 14 (Reuters) – The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed 784 enforcement actions in the fiscal year that ran through September, garnering $4.95 billion in penalties and other financial remedies, the agency said in a statement on Tuesday.

The total financial remedies in fiscal 2023 were the second-highest in SEC history, following last year’s record of $6.4 billion, including both disgorgement and interest in addition to civil penalties, and underscored how the agency has sought to more aggressively police violations and misconduct under Democratic leadership.
