Regulatory & Compliance Issues Confronting Hedge Funds Today
About Our Keynote Speaker
David Weild IV – Known widely as the "Father of the JOBS Act," David is the Founder, Chairman & CEO of Weild & Co. He is former Vice Chairman of the NASDAQ Stock Market in charge of the Corporate Client Division, with line responsibility for NASDAQ's 4,000 listed companies. He also was in charge of NASDAQ's Market Intelligence DeskSM, Corporate Services NetworkSM, Dual Listings and Research Initiatives.
David co-authored the long-term decline in equity capital formation in the United States and provided the core arguments that gave rise to the JOBS Act and many of its specific provisions.
In connection with the JOBS Act, David has also called for a "JOBS Act 2" or "JOBS Act Part 2" – language increasingly heard on Capitol Hill. His written work was cited by a broad range of legislators, regulators, academics, the IPO Task Force and the White House Jobs Council leading up to the JOBS Act. David has testified in Congress (most recently in June 2013) and at the SEC (most recently at the Roundtable on Decimalization) on these and other market issues and attended the signing of the JOBS Act by President Obama in the Rose Garden on April 5, 2012.
David was also recently asked to author a study for the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) titled "Making Stock Markets Work to Support Economic Growth" and presented in April 2013 in draft form to the 35 member nations of the OECD, IOSCO and the European Commission.
