Perpetrators of securities fraud are responsible for not only a loss of assets, but also the devastation of investor confidence, which can carve away at the respect people have for the global financial markets. The destruction caused by their actions, both emotional and financial, is staggering. In fact, one respected academic study from Stanford Law School reported an annual damage estimate of nearly $700 billion for 2007. In a time when headlines are filled with the stories of Madoff and Stanford, preventing and investigating securities fraud is now more important than ever.
