Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)

The SEC is an independent federal government regulatory agency that works to protect investors. The agency regulates the securities market, as the name suggests, and they monitor corporations and traders that aren’t being fully honest with the goal of protecting investors from fraud and other types of manipulation while trading securities.
Example: Brokers and dealers that trade on the securities market have to pay an SEC fee. This fee supports the SEC and offsets the costs of having them regular the market and enforce rules.
