Jackson, Peirce Sworn in as SEC Commissioners

Robert Jackson and Hester Peirce were sworn into office as Commissioners by SEC Chairman Jay Clayton, according to an SEC release.  “I’m honored to join Chairman Clayton and Commissioners Stein, Piwowar and Peirce in the SEC’s critical mission of ensuring that investors are protected, that our markets provide a level playing field for all Americans, and that entrepreneurs have access to the capital they need to create jobs,” Commissioner Jackson said.  Jackson and Peirce were nominated to the SEC by President Trump, and their nominations were confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Dec. 21. “It is such an honor to return to the SEC to work with my colleagues on the Commission and the staff for the benefit of investors and the American economy,” Commissioner Peirce said. Clayton lauded the new commissioners at the swearing in ceremony, remarking that they were joining“a remarkably talented and supportive group.”
