Mary Jo White, SEC Chair
Security Traders Association
83rd Annual Market Structure Conference
Thank you, Jim [Toes], for that kind introduction. I am honored to join you again for your annual market structure conference.
The American equity markets are the strongest in the world, and one of the Commission’s most important responsibilities is to work every day to maintain their fairness, orderliness, and efficiency. Optimizing market structure is a continuous process, one that requires the Commission to act with both care and intensity, strictly guided by what is best for investors and capital formation for public companies.
