The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions wants Washington investors to know that state securities regulators are available to provide information and assistance during the government shutdown.

The federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has operated on a limited basis since December 28, 2018 due to the partial closure of the federal government.

State and federal securities regulators share the same mission to protect investors and the integrity of our financial markets.  The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions is happy to assist the SEC while it operates with limited staffing as a result of the partial federal government shutdown.

The Washington State Department of Financial Institutions is available to field investor complaints or answer questions regarding small business capital formation.
