On October 1, 2014 at the IOSCO 39th Annual Conference in Rio de Janiero, Chair Mary Jo White delivered remarks on The Challenge of Coverage, Accountability and Deterrence in Global Enforcement. In summarizing, the SEC's current approach to global enforcement, Chair White stated,
To meet that challenge, we must remain vigilant in combating fraud and other misconduct, whether in our own backyards or across the globe. We must continue to work together through the MMoU and our bilateral agreements, and we must assess these tools constantly, making sure that they are as effective as they can be in our rapidly changing world. We want the fraudsters who seek to prey on our investors and manipulate our markets to know that there is no place to run and no place to hide. The investors who place their faith and their trust in us deserve no less.
