Loaded SEC agenda to carry into 2023
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has a historically ambitious list of new rules under consideration heading into 2023.
Proposals regarding climate-related disclosures; cybersecurity breach notifications; and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) claims by investment advisers remain unfinalized. SEC Chair Gary Gensler, who has been outspoken in his belief most cryptocurrencies are likely securities, will bring his expertise on the subject to the table as Congress and other regulators seek to determine how to oversee the turbulent industry.
Meanwhile, a variety of factors—including legal challenges to controversial rules and a Republican takeover of the House—could place significant roadblocks in the way of the SEC’s agenda.
