Morrison Takes on Corruption in Finance

Helane Morrison, serves on the subcommittee of the American Bar Association. With over a decade of experience in hedge fund management, she is currently dedicated to make investments more transparent for Hall Capital Management clients. She has surrounded herself with an expert team of committed legal professionals to assist her in this agenda. After the 2008 financial crisis, it is easy to understand why investment anxiety is prevalent in these times. It takes confidence in markets for economies to get going again, and this is a driving motivation for Morrison. 

Morrison’s dedication to financial transparency led her to work with investigators to unearth some very massive deceipt within hedge fund management. False security sales to 50,000 military personnel by the insurance company American Amicable was one of the most well known cases that gave Morrison a reputation for taking a hard line with corruption. She was also able to target corrupt auditors working within renowned firms such as Ernst and Young. White collar crimes such as alteration and tampering with documents routinely took place despite the knowledge of this to be a crimimal act. 

These cases, paired with her concern over rampant fraud against senior citizens has made Morrison a champion for fair investment strategies. In seeking to promote protection for senior citizens, Morrison has hoped that older individuals will feel more confident to invest what are often considerable assets. It is after all, older investors who have had more time and resources to build up a valuable portfolio, but less energy to keep up with all their accounts. Most of this abuse occurs with online trading sites that have developed hairline illegal tactice to take advantage of inexperienced investors. 

Although Helane seems selflessly dedicated to lessening fraud and abuse within hedge fund and other financial management systems, she possesses the work life balance needed to stay away from extremity in her professional life. This is partially on the encouragement of Hall Capital. It recognizes the accomplishment’s of its employees, understanding that they often work on high profile and complex projects. Morrison is no different. She manages to sit on the board of many prominent organizations. Brooklyn bred, she has obtained a B.S. in Journalism from Northwestern University in addition to a J.D. from the University of California at Berkeley, School of Law. Morrison’s talents will hopefully inspire more financial professionals to become advocates for transparency within the financial sector.
