U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission Chair Gary Gensler signaled corporate bonds are in his crosshairs, showing his focus extends beyond frothy markets like crypto and meme stocks to a key pillar of Wall Street.

The SEC chief, set to testify Tuesday in the Senate, said in prepared remarks that he’s asked the regulator’s staff to recommend ways to “bring greater efficiency and transparency” to everything from corporate debt to municipal bonds and mortgage securities.
