Helane Morrison is the right kind of person for maintaining ethical integrity in the finance industry, while also policing it. She began her career in journalism and transitioned into governmental services a few years later. Morrison has steadily worked to prevent corruption and protect the those to be corrupted. A true visionary of “Robin Hood” if there ever was one. Being one of the most important players in the industry, Helane enjoys exposing corrupt brokers and revolutionizing the financial work place! With all this power and influence, it’s no wonder Helane Morrison has stood out in this industry for over 30 years!
The exposure of 07-08’s global economic crisis left millions of individuals dumbfounded with shock as their trusted institutions were revealed to have no solid foundations, leading to the crumbling of effects. Unemployment rockets and banks were turning to the government for financial bailouts. The tragic crisis tossed America’s economy into a spiral of doom, but it also revealed to the world the unethical behavior that was strewn throughout the entire financial sector. Wall Street couldn’t be trusted and the world was left anxious and unforgiving. Recent polls of Wall Street have discovered that only 28% of Americans believe the country’s economy is able to stand on its own.
Helane’s hand in exposing the corruption, revealing the mistrust, and working to correct the financial sector are more than astounding. Her list of accomplishments during her time at the San Francisco of US Securities and Exchange is incredibly impressive. During her 11 years of dedication, Morrison headed numerous financial fraud cases, exposed sales of false securities to military personnel by insurance companies, and was deeply involved in protecting national senior citizens from fraud and market manipulations. Helane is truly a paragon of her time.
Morrison is also an expert at balancing herself while balancing the world around her. From serving on the Bar Association of San Francisco judiciary committee (to eventually becoming its director), she currently sits on the board of the hedge fund subcommittee of the American Bar Association. There she works to police the regulations of hedge fund management. Her passion for the environment and animal rights compliment her actions of the Regional Parks Foundation. Helane is also the proud receiver of the coveted title Most Influential Woman in the Bay Area Business and Public Sector on four different occasions. Helane is certainly the policing tigress among thousands of money-hungry lions.
