Regulators, fines.

Anyone know what the regulators do with the fines they impose on firms? Thanks

Hire more ppl to hand out more fines ; ) But the premise is ensuring investor protection and market integrity+ education, etc.

Thanks, but I understand why they’re there… just wanted to know what they do with the fines…

??? That IS what they do with the fines- fund themselves- using FINRA as an example: “The use of fine monies is limited to capital expenditures and specified regulatory projects that have a clear and direct nexus to protecting investors and ensuring market integrity.”
