About the Heuerman Fund

The Heuerman Fund for the study of Investment Law and Regulation was set up by Richard and Lois Heuerman to provide a permanent endowment for research and teaching at the University of Toledo in the area of investment regulation.  In addition to funding this Web site, the Fund sponsored speakers and conferences and expanded the law library's collection in related areas of study.

While we list securities, banking and insurance regulators separately, there is a continuing trend toward unified financial regulators in a number of jurisdictions.  For a discussion of functional regulation vs. consolidated regulation of financial institutions and markets, these remarks by the Director of the SEC's Office of International Affairs are of interest.
