On June 18, 2018, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released a speech by Chairman Jay Clayton, where he discusses the importance of developing, improving and reinforcing positive culture in our financial institutions.

In his speech, Mr. Clayton covered the following topics:

  • Culture is not an option
  • Know your culture
  • Culture is a collection of countless internal and external actions
  • Preserving and enhancing culture through a clear and constant mission
  • Culture beyond the law and regulation
  • We do not expect perfection; we do expect commitment and action

Review the full speech on the SEC's website.
