FINRA's Ketchum Acknowledges Lack of Confidence, Calls for More Regulation

He references the erosion of investor confidence after the market collapse and the arrest of Madoff, causing some to wonder, "given his status as a respected veteran of the securities industry, many investors were left to wonder if he was truly an outlier, or emblematic of how the industry operates."

Interesting comment from a long term FINRA insider and the now-CEO of one of the requlators who let that fraud go on under their noses for decades.

Does Mr. Ketchum fall on his sword and resign? No. Incredibly he calls for more regulation, and pushes again to gain regulatory control over investment advisors.
