Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)


The Securities and Exchange Commission, also known as the SEC, is a government organization that the United States Congress formed. The commission’s overarching goals are to protect investors, maintain fair and orderly operations of the securities market and aiding in capital formation. Recently, the SEC continues to assist startups, such as crowdfunding real estate platforms with new regulations allowing average investors to take part in real estate investments.
