Commissioner Aguilar on Fraud Against Seniors

In a recent speech, Commissioner Aguilar expressed concern about the vulnerability of seniors to securities fraud.  He is advocating greater federal leadership on this issue, including a federal effort to collect, compile and disseminate data from elder abuse cases nationwide, which can be used by federal and state regulators to help battle financial exploitation.  Commissioner Aguilar also advocates for the SEC to do more, including implement Dodd-Frank act requirements to establish and maintain an Investor Advisory Committee to help create an avenue by which seniors could communicate with the Commission.
