In Regulatory Wrap for the week to August 11, 2023:

In this Regulatory Wrap, we look at the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) latest enforcement action, in which it charged 11 Wall Street firms with recordkeeping failures. In the same week, we saw some of the strictest messaging yet from regulators regarding off-channel communications. Are regulators losing patience with continued non-compliance?

Highlights:

1. Despite a summer lull, the SEC has issued over half a billion dollars to 11 Wall Street firms for recordkeeping failures

2. Alongside this enforcement, we saw the most severe regulatory messaging issued to date from CFTC Commissioner, Christy Goldsmith Romero

3. We ask whether financial regulators have lost patience with continued non-compliance
