SEC Chairman Gary Gensler questioned Tuesday when design elements and psychological nudges associated with digital engagement platforms, or DEPs, “cross the line” and become recommendations.

“The answer to that question is important, because that might change the nature of the platform’s obligations under the securities laws,” Gensler said Tuesday at the Practising Law Institute’s SEC Speaks event.
