Helane Morrison has had a long career in the financial district in San Francisco. She started out as a defense lawyer for clients that were being sued by the SEC. She later transitioned to working for the SEC. During her time working for the SEC she was promoted as the Director for the San Francisco office of the Security Exchange Commission. In 2007, she started working for Hall Capital and today sits as the Managing Director and Chief Compliance Officer for the investment firm. Her job as CCO is to make sure that the investment company is completely compliant with all aspects of the SECs regulations.
Morrison worked from 1999-2007 for the SEC. She worked tirelessly to fight the corrupt activities that existed in all markets. She eventually became the director for the San Francisco office of the SEC. The director for the San Fran office is in charge of the entire state of California and 5 other states in the Pacific Northwest in including Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Nevada. She was a staunchfighter against corrupt practices by investors and lenders. Her experience as a defense attorney for those being sued by the SEC was a huge source of knowledge for this.
This fight continued through 2007. This is the year that the housing bubble burst and the market collapsed. This housing market collapse was a result of predatory lending practices by banks when it came to home loans. They would give money for what were called subprime mortgages. Morrison was at the forefront of fighting against and attempting to prosecute these individuals.
After the market collapse in 2007, Helane Morrison saw the trust that people seemed to have lost in investment professionals. She completely understands the positive effects that market can have on people’s bottom line if they stick with the process over time. This is what led her to take a job in the private sector working for Hall Capital Group.
Hall Capital Group is one of the leading investment firms in the state of California. Part of the reason Morrison was drawn to the company is the fact that the firm is completely run by women. As the Managing Director of Hall Capital Group, Morrison has worked to win back the trust of investors. This is especially in the real estate market.
She has a degree in Journalism from Northwestern University. She also has a law degree from the University of California at Berkley. She will combine her education and years of experience to help investors all over the state of California win back their nest egg.
