SEC Monitoring Impact Of Hurricane Irma On Capital Markets, Continues To Monitor Impact Of Hurricane Harvey

from the Securities and Exchange Commission

The Securities and Exchange Commission is closely monitoring of the impact of Hurricane Irma on investors and capital markets, and continues to monitor the impacts of Hurricane Harvey.

"As we are doing in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey, the SEC will be closely monitoring the effects of Hurricane Irma. We will be making sure investors have access to their securities accounts, evaluating the need to extend deadlines for filings and other regulatory requirements, and keeping a watchful eye for storm-related scams," said SEC Chairman Jay Clayton. “Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone affected by these terrible storms."

The SEC Divisions and Offices that oversee companies, accountants, investment advisers, mutual funds, brokerage firms, transfer agents, and other regulated entities and investment professionals will continue to closely track developments. They will evaluate the possibility of granting relief from filing deadlines and other regulatory requirements for those affected by the storms. Until the Commission’s Miami Regional Office reopens, investors and market participants in Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico can contact the Commission’s Atlanta Regional Office. Entities and investment professionals affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma are encouraged to contact Commission staff with questions and concerns:

Individuals experiencing problems accessing their securities accounts or with similar questions or concerns relating to the hurricanes are encouraged to contact the Commission's Office of Investor Education and Advocacy by phone at 1-800-SEC-0330 or email at help@sec.gov.

The Division of Enforcement will be vigilant for Hurricane Harvey and Irma-related securities scams and will vigorously prosecute those who attempt to defraud victims of the storms. The SEC is asking investors to report any suspicious solicitations at www.sec.gov/complaint/tipscomplaint.shtml. An SEC Investor Alert can be found at: https://investor.gov/additional-resources/news-alerts/alerts-bulletins/investor-alert-be-vigilant-investment-scams.
