What are the regulatory goals of security laws?
The regulatory goals or purpose of the securities laws include:
- preventing manipulation of the securities market;
- full disclosure of material information to stakeholders;
- preventing fraud; and
- leveling the playing field between insiders of a company and investors.
Each of these regulatory goals are not independent. Fairness and the prevention of deceit underline each objective.
