Ex-Hedge Fund Manager To Help Lead SEC Exams

Oct 21 2014 | 7:37am ET

The Securities and Exchange Commission has a new top inspector who knows his way around a hedge fund.

Marc Wyatt was named deputy director of the regulator’s office of compliance inspections and examinations, the SEC said, replacing acting director Joy Thompson.

Wyatt is a former senior portfolio manager at Stark Investments, and also worked at Merrill Lynch.

Wyatt joined the SEC in 2012. In April, he helped set up a special private equity and hedge fund examinations group, and serves as co-coordinator of the office’s private fund specialized working group.

“During his time here, Marc has demonstrated exceptional drive, judgment and knowledge of the industry,” compliance inspections director Andrew Bowden said. “He is a superb manager and communicator, and he will continue to be an effective advocate for investors in his new position within OCIE.”
