Swank Capital appoints chief compliance officer
He is responsible for oversight of the firm’s legal and regulatory compliance functions and will also work closely with senior management on product development and other strategic initiatives. He will serve in the same capacity for the Cushing MLP Funds.
‘Barry is a significant addition to our firm and we are confident that the investment community will concur,’ comments Jerry Swank, founder of Swank Capital, in announcing the appointment. ‘His background in private and public funds and seven years with the SEC provides the critical perspective necessary to accomplish our long-term growth strategy; he is a great fit for us.’
Prior to joining Swank, Greenberg was based in Dallas where he was a partner in the investment funds practice of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld. In that role he was responsible for advising private US and offshore funds, mutual funds and investment advisers on a wide range of issues including entity formation, governance and regulatory compliance.
Greenberg’s career includes a stint with the SEC’s employment division and 10 years as in-house general counsel for a mutual fund sponsor and manager of alternative investment funds. He holds a JD from Tulane University Law School and a BA from Emory University.
