Investor Protection Trust

Devoted to Providing Unbiased Investor Education and Funding Investor Protection Efforts

Remembering Lynne Egan

The IPT team and Trustees remember Lynne Egan, our Lead Trustee and Montana’s Deputy Securities Commissioner.

Lynne earned the NASAA Blue Sky Cube Award for Exceptional Public Service and Fierce Advocacy on behalf of the Investing Public, as well as the U.S. Attorney’s Themis Award for Extraordinary Professionalism, Perseverance, and Effort in the Pursuit of Justice for Victims of Securities Fraud. Her integrity and leadership improved the IPT, and she will be missed.
