lead regulator


A leading self-regulatory organization (SRO) charged with investigating and overseeing compliance with a particular legal issue. For example, the New York Stock Exchange may take the lead in investigating cases related to fraud while the NASDAQ may be in charge of investigating cases related to corporate governance. Details of an investigation case are reported to other SROs, and then a government oversight committee (for example, the SEC).
