Securities Act of 1933

The Securities Act of 1933 was formed and enacted to protect investors after the stock market crash of 1929. The main objective behind this act was to generate transparency in the securities market. The Securities Act of 1933 was also designed to prevent misrepresentation and fraudulent activities in the securities markets.


A company that registers itself under the 1933 Act must create a registration statement that includes detailed information about the security, the company, the business, and its audited financial statements. So the company becomes strictly liable for any inaccuracies present in the document.
