SEC pays $325K whistleblower award but warns it could have been more
Yesterday, the SEC sent a message, and it wasn’t subtle: speed counts. The agency announced
it was making a $325,000 award to the 22nd
whistleblower to receive an award under the SEC’s whistleblower program since its inception in 2011. But its press release also stressed that “the award could have been higher” had the whistleblower not “hesitated” to bring his or her information to the Commission.
