The type of activity the SEC is most interested in, includes brokers who materially mislead investors so that they make buying and selling decisions concerning stocks that they might not have made, had they been fully and accurately informed. It also includes specific sales abuses engaged in by JP Morgan or brokers with the firm. If a JP Morgan employee submits a tip to the SEC that is original, voluntary, and results in sanctions worth more than $1,000,000, the whistleblower could be rewarded between 10 and 30 percent of the fines collected. In some cases, whistleblowers have been awarded millions of dollars for their contribution to the SEC investigation.
In February of this year, a former JP Morgan paid $30 million to a whistleblower who asked to not be identified. The award was the Commodity Futures Trading Commission’s (CFTC) fifth highest whistleblower award, since eclipsing a $10 million one in 2016. It is the CFTC’s second in excess of $1 million. The case alleged that JP Morgan did not properly disclose that it was steering asset-management customers into investments that would be profitable for the bank.

Earlier this month, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that it would award between $5 million and $6 million to a whistleblower. This is the third-highest award ever. The whistleblower provided information detailing securities violations committed by his former employer. Under the Dodd-Frank Act, the SEC is authorized to award between 10% and 30% of monetary sanctions collected to a whistleblower who provides original information which leads to the collection of $1 million or more in sanctions. Employees are often best positioned to witness and therefore, report, wrongdoing. Since 2011, at the inception of the whistleblower program, the SEC has awarded more than $67 million to 29 whistleblowers. In 2015, the SEC’s Office of the Whistleblower received 3,923 tips, an increase of 30% over the last three years.
