The Program is open to different types of professionals, which may include attorneys, economists, accountants, risk professionals and other experts in the securities industry."It's a great way to bring in highly-seasoned financial experts who can help us keep pace with the practices of Wall Street and protect investors," said Chairman Mary Schapiro (pictured).
