Every industry needs someone that is going to regulate and monitor the business making decisions and deals, especially the financial industry. Companies that use their clients money to do business need to always do so with the interest of their clients, and not just focused on returns that will garner them profits. Helane Morrison is that regulatory foundation in the corporate world of investing. After serving for several years in a governmental role, regulating securities and monitoring fraud, Morrison made a career move to a private firm.
Now that Morrison works with Hall, a corporate investment firm, Helane is dedicated to ensuring that individual investors everywhere are able to invest safely and with confidence. Helane didn’t have to leave and take this position, but it was important to her that she help re-establish the trust that was lost when so many private investors lost their life savings following irresponsible investment practices in years past.
In the many roles that Morrison has held, enforcing compliance and holding investors to the highest level of industry standards have been her focus. Catching fraudulent behavior and illegal practices can be difficult within the trade, often unnoticeable until deals are made. A practiced and watchful eye, and plenty of experience trying case after case for the city leave very few new tricks that Morrison is not aware of and able to spot. Not only is this a beneficial skill for clients she works with, but it is something her new firm has come to rely on in order to ensure that every deal and investment they participate in is clean and fair.
