In Their Own Words. . . .CFTC Commissioner Christy Goldsmith Romero
“Whistleblowers play a vital role in supporting CFTC investigations related to fraud and other illegality. The CFTC could not fully protect customers and markets without whistleblowers. . . . The faster we can stop fraud, the more we can protect customers from harm.”
From Commissioner Goldsmith Romero’s Statement on the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s Annual Report on its Whistleblower Program, which highlights the critical role whistleblowers play in the agency’s enforcement regime. The CFTC has awarded almost $350 million to whistleblowers under the Program, with more than $3 billion in recoveries in cases associated with those awards.
