Investigating securities fraud, by the numbers

233 FBI agents are assigned to investigate securities fraud cases, while 110 focus on corporate fraud. According to FBI Director Robert Mueller, the bureau had more than 2300 open financial investigations at the end of its 2010 fiscal year. Mueller gave those numbers at a Congressional hearing, after Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan) asked why there hadn’t been more cases stemming from the financial crisis, according to Reuters.
