The SEC has finished its investigation of Warren Buffett’s former possible successor, David Sokol, regarding possible insider trading, and has decided not to take action.
Among recent actions taken by the SEC and FINRA were the breakup of an insider trading ring; Raymond James getting fined and censured; and proceedings over securities law violations by the Big Four accounting firms' China affiliates.
According to sources, a heads-up from Finra led the SEC to investigate potential insider trading at SAC.
