US Securities and Exchange Commission
Commissioner Kara M. Stein
Remarks before the Securities Traders Association’s 82nd Annual Market Structure Conference
Thank you, Jim [Toes], for that kind introduction. I appreciate the invitation to be with you today. Both the Securities Traders Association (“STA”) and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission” or “SEC”) were formed in 1934, at a pivotal time in our nation’s history. Both have been serving investors now for over 80 years. It is a pleasure to be speaking to a group of professionals who have been, and continue to be, concerned about the structure and operations of our capital markets.
