Securities Act of 1933
The Securities Act of 1933 is a United States federal law that requires the registration of all securities offerings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The act was enacted in response to the stock market crash of 1929 and was designed to provide greater transparency and disclosure in the securities markets.
One key provision of the Securities Act of 1933 is the requirement that all securities offerings must be registered with the SEC. This provides potential investors with important information about the offering, including the company’s financial condition and the risks involved.
Another key provision of the Securities Act is the requirement that all offers and sales of securities must be done through a registered broker-dealer. This helps to ensure that investors are working with a professional who is familiar with the market and the risks involved.
