New York, NY – October 12, 2021 – Silver, a premier provider of regulatory compliance, ESG and due diligence advisory services to the investment management industry, today announced it has expanded with the addition of Jaclyn Halk, as director. As the private funds space faces increased regulatory scrutiny under the new administration and SEC leadership, the firm continues to steadily expand its regulatory compliance bench.
Bringing combined in-house and external regulatory and compliance experience, Jaclyn is focused on creating mindful compliance programs that balance regulatory risk with business operations. At Silver, Jaclyn works closely with investment firm Chief Compliance Officers to evaluate and improve on their existing policies and procedures.
“Emerging strategies like ESG and cryptocurrency have everyone from asset managers to regulators and investors asking different questions and charting entirely new courses for measurement, reporting and disclosures,” said Nicholas Nunez, head of regulatory compliance at Silver. “As we help asset managers navigate this complex environment, Jaclyn’s well-rounded compliance and investment management industry expertise is invaluable.”
Prior to joining Silver, Jaclyn was a compliance officer at Hudson Advisors, an SEC and CFTC registered global private equity firm with approximately $40 billion in regulatory assets. Jaclyn served as the firm’s point person for SEC and NFA regulatory matters including filings, responding to regulatory inquiries, and interpreting Advisers Act and Commodity Exchange Act requirements. Prior to Hudson, Jaclyn was a manager at Constellation Advisors, a compliance consulting services firm, where she assisted new advisers in building their compliance program from the ground up and registering with regulatory agencies, as required.
