Investor Protection & Securities
The Secretary of State, through the Securities Division, is responsible for protecting Missouri investors from fraud and for ensuring firms and individuals selling securities comply with the securities laws in the state. The Commissioner of Securities leads the Securities Division and enforces the Missouri Uniform Securities Act, which is Missouri's Blue Sky Law. The Securities Division is organized into three sections: investor education, enforcement, and registration.
