WASHINGTON, Oct 1 (Reuters) - U.S. securities regulators
announced Tuesday they have awarded a record $14 million to a
whistleblower who helped enforcement lawyers with an
investigation that helped recover "substantial" investor funds.
This marks the largest-ever whistleblower award the
Securities and Exchange Commission has paid out since it
launched its new whistleblower incentive program under the 2010
Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law.
The SEC did not identify the case, saying the whistleblower
wishes to remain anonymous.
