The SEC announced on Tuesday that Jane E. Jarcho has been named as the national associate director of the investment adviser/investment company examination program at the Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations.
“I am honored and excited for the opportunity to work with the IA/IC examination staff in Washington, D.C. and throughout the country,” Jarcho said. “I have worked alongside the IA/IC staff for several years and know they are a dedicated group of professionals who are committed to protecting investors by promoting compliance, informing policy, and detecting wrongdoing.”
Jarcho, who has served as the acting national associate director of the IA/IC exam program since March, will oversee approximately 450 lawyers, accountants and examiners responsible for conducting inspections of U.S.-registered investment firms and advisers.
“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.
Before joining the OCIE in 2008, Jarcho began her SEC career in the enforcement division. She has a bachelor’s degree from Middlebury College and a law degree from the University of Wisconsin Law School.
The OCIE conducts the SEC’s examination program for IAs and ICs, broker-dealers, self-regulatory organizations, transfer agents, clearing agencies and credit rating firms.
