The Securities and Exchange Commission oversees securities, transactions, and activities of financial professionals and mutual fund trading to prevent fraud and intentional deception. The SEC was designed to boost confidence in markets by providing investors with reliable information. The SEC is to protect investors, maintain fair, orderly, and efficient markets, and facilitate capital formation.  The SEC is divided into divisions.  Those are the division of corporation finance, trading and markets, investment management, and enforcement.

As of 2015, there is a total of  4,301 employees that work for the SEC. The Division of Corporation Finance seeks to ensure that investors are provided with material information in order to make informed investment decisions.  The Division of Investment Management regulates investment companies, variable insurance products, and federally registered investment advisers.  The Division of Trading and Markets establishes and maintains standards for fair, orderly, and efficient markets. It regulates the major securities market participants, broker-dealers, and self-regulatory organizations.
