Securities Act of 1933
The Securities Act of 1933 is often referred to as the truth in securities law. It requires that investors receive financial and other significant information concerning securities being offered for public sale. It also aims to prohibit deceit, misrepresentations, and other fraud in the sale of securities.
A primary means of accomplishing these goals is the registration of securities. The full text of this act is available from the Securities and Exchange Commission on the regulatory agency's web site .
