SEC Floats Rules to Shore Up Money Markets, Curb Insider Trading – WSJ – The Wall Street Journal

WASHINGTON—The Securities and Exchange Commission issued a raft of proposals Wednesday including measures aimed at shoring up money-market funds and curbing executives’ ability to trade their own companies’ stock.

The proposals, some of which surprised Wall Street executives with their scope, indicate that Chairman Gary Gensler is moving quickly to enact a policy agenda that observers have called the SEC’s most ambitious in decades. That stands in contrast to other financial regulators, for which President Biden has yet to fill key positions, and saw a nominee withdraw amid Senate skepticism during confirmation.
