White-collar crime is a financially motivated, economic,
non-violent crime committed for illegal monetary gain. White-collar crimes,
especially in the brokerage industry are serious crimes where prison time,
restitution and fines are often sought by the government. Customers bestow
trust and confidence to a financial professional and when it is violated the
authorities have an interest to prosecute, often to the fullest extent the law
allows. The amount of money involved in the securities industry usually
increases the sentencing guidelines. Securities laws are designed to protect
the integrity of the market and to create an even playing field for investors.
When these laws are violated the authorities have an obligation to prosecute.
Common types of white-collar crimes in the financial
industry are as follows:
- Securities Fraud
- Wire Fraud
- Insider Trading
