Helane Morrison is Changing the Corporate World

Sometimes it takes a crisis to expose the cream of the crop, and this statement is probably most true in the world of finances. With the 2008 global financial crisis we all witnessed the collapse of large financial institutions, the bursting of the housing market bubble that resulted in foreclosures, evictions and eventually long term unemployment. After the smoke cleared, the dregs that settled to the bottom of the barrel revealed high risk mortgage related financial products supported by Wall Street overindulgence and shady brokerage dealings. It is these exact scenarios that Helane Morrison has worked tirelessly to uncover, not only in the financial business climate, but in her personal ethical standards that remain unwavering in all aspects of her life.

Operating as a prime motivator of change has been a resolute mission of Morrison. In the financial services industry, she is leading by example, demonstrating that woman are every bit as capable of solid upper management decision making and leadership as their male counterparts. Breaking the glass ceiling of the financial institution’s boy’s club takes courage, determination and superlative industry expertise. Perhaps her past position as the Regional Director of the San Francisco office of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) helped galvanize her strong ethical resolutions, as she promoted an aggressive agenda to strengthen and enforce regulatory compliance during a time where corporations where making false audit claims and destroying documents. 


Helane Morrison currently wears many hats at Hall Capital, a San Francisco based portfolio management and financial advisory firm. As General Counsel, Chief Compliance Officer and Managing Director, she has broken through the glass ceiling in a profession where executive level seats were generally reserved for men. Yet her qualifications are indisputable. After receiving her B.S. in journalism from Northwestern University, Ms. Morrison went on to earn her Juris Doctorate degree from the University of California at Berkeley. 

While regaining the faith that the public had lost in banks and corporations from the early 2000’s has been a monumental undertaking from the government to Wall Street and each and every corporate team that was shaken by the resulting recession of that era, it often comes down to individual acts of integrity and unrelenting determination to maintaining ethical standards. Helane realizes their are no guarantees in the world of finance, she believes that industry watchdogs are an important part of the process to ensure both sides of the investment deal are acting in accordance with trading regulations and security laws.
