Ex-SEC Man Joins Hedge Fund Lobby

Nov 4 2008 | 1:31am ET

The leading lobbyist for U.S. hedge funds has added a high-profile lawyer and former regulator.

Stuart Kaswell will join the Managed Funds Association on Dec. 1, the industry association said yesterday. He will serve as executive vice president and general counsel, representing the industry on both domestic and international regulatory matters.

Kaswell is currently a partner at Washington, D.C., law firm Bryan Cave. He has also worked at law firm Dechert and the Securities Industry Association. Prior to entering the private sector, Kaswell worked for the House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee and oversaw the National Association of Securities Dealers at the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Kaswell will “provide an excellent complement to the MFA team as we prepare to participate in Congress’ effort to modernize the regulatory framework for financial services in the U.S.,” MFA chief Richard Baker said.
