The Securities and Exchange Commission is making risk disclosures one of its highest priorities, with the goal of doing a better job of regulating derivates, hedge funds and credit rating agencies.

On Wednesday, the SEC is taking up the details of shareholder voting, sometimes referred to as "proxy plumbing."

Other areas the SEC is honing in on are:

  • Risk Disclosure
  • Derivatives
  • Hedging
  • Shorting
  • Arbitrage
  • Market Orders
  • Executive Compensation Practices
  • Proxies and Shareholder Voting
