On Thursday, October 31, the Forum will host a webinar discussion with two members of the staff of the Division of Investment Management: Doug Scheidt, Associate Director and Chief Counsel, and Jamie Eichen, Chief Accountant. The topic of the webinar will be an update of issues relating to valuation, accounting, and SEC regulations.
Doug Scheidt has for many years been a key player in the SEC’s work on policy issues such as valuation. The Office of the Chief Counsel also responds to no-action and interpretive requests under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Jamie Eichen is responsible for interpreting new accounting and auditing regulations and directing the financial reporting, accounting, and auditing practices of investment companies in compliance with the federal securities laws.
