The Commission also focuses on issues of market integrity, which seeks to protect: the economic integrity of the markets so that they may operate free from manipulation; the financial integrity of the markets so that the insolvency of a single participant does not become a systemic problem affecting other market participants; and the operational integrity of the markets so that transactions are executed fairly and that proper disclosures are made to existing and prospective customers.
