Recently, XRepublic published an article recapping and explaining the life, thus far, of one of the most profound, successful and diligent women in the financial and investing industries: Helane Morrison.
Helane Morrison is a name that I believe should be very well-known and even more-so respected by anyone who claims to be an investor or work within the financial industry. Morrison graduated from college in Chicago, Illinois, earning her B.S. degree in journalism from Northwestern University. Later, while working as editor-in-chief of the California Law Review, Helane Morrison passed the bar and earned her J.D. degree in California from the University of California at Berkeley, School of Law.
From the years of 1984 to 1996, Helane Morrison held many positions as a law clerk for US Court of Appeals for the Seventh District’s Hon. Richard Posen for a year, from 1984 to 1985; from 1985 to 1986 Helane Morrison worked for Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun; from 1986 to 1991 Helane Morrison worked for a large law firm until being named a partner of the firm wherein she remained until 1996, here she would focus on much of the work that would become her specialty field–litigation and legislation enforcement for the Securities and Exchange Commission.
In 1996, Helane Morrison became the head of enforcement for the San Francisco SEC office where she served until 1999. During this period, Helane Morrison also held responsibility for representing the Securities and Exchange Commission to other branches, agencies and departments of the United States government along with various news media outlets reporting on such information.
As of now, Helane Morrison currently holds office in a San Francisco, California investment company and firm: Hall Capital Partners, one of the most successful and relevant companies of its type in the American Northwest. Helane Morrison acts as the Managing Director, General Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer for the firm, where she has worked since 2007. She joined the firm following her previous job that she worked from 1999 to 2007 as the absolute head of the Securities and Exchange Commission in San Francisco, California.
The role of Helane Morrison within the Hall Capital Partners firm holds true to her self-declared goals and aspirations of aiding in the fight against corruption within public financial practices through ensuring compliance with those laws and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Morrison serves as a Compliance Officer; therefore, she works to maintain public compliance with the SEC through all of her financial and legal efforts. She is a renowned woman and has spearheaded many of the SEC’s operations and efforts.
