The Securities Bureau Investigation team conducts investigations into possible violations of the Idaho Uniform Securities Act and Rules. Investigations generally focus on companies and individuals offering or selling securities and those providing financial guidance or advice, with an emphasis on financial exploitation of vulnerable adults, investment fraud, and other uses of illicit finance. Our investigators use forensic accounting techniques to trace assets and funds in order to detect and prevent fraud, collaborate with professionals in other industries to gather evidence and provide financial expertise in investigations, and provide expert witness testimony to help explain complex financial matters.
