RIAs have a new top cop in Washington.
The SEC has named Jane Jarcho as national associate director of the Investment Adviser/Investment Company examination program in the Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations -- the unit that runs the national examination program for SEC-registered investment advisors, among other financial services organizations.
She will oversee the roughly 450 lawyers, accountants and examiners who handle inspections of U.S.-registered investment advisers and investment companies.
Jarcho, a 23-year SEC veteran, has been in the role since March as acting national associate director. She previously held a similar role in the SEC's regional office in Chicago.
Jane brings a wealth of experience that will help us to continue to strengthen our risk-based approach to the examination of investment advisers and investment companies, OCIE Director Andrew Bowden said in a statement.
The OCIE division also examines broker-dealers, self-regulatory organizations, clearing agencies, transfer agents and credit rating agencies.
