NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Oct 14, 2015) - Norm Champ, a lecturer on investment management at Harvard Law School and former Director of the Division of Investment Management at the SEC, will be speaking at two events hosted by the Managed Funds Association, an industry organization established to enable key players in the alternative investment management space to participate in public policy discourse:

  • October 15th, New York, NY, at the Annual Hedge Fund Leadership Conference.
    Champ will moderate the session "The Global Outlook for Financial Regulation".

  • October 27th, London, UK, at the Inaugural Global Regulatory Summit 2015.
    Champ will moderate the session on how the Current U.S. Regulatory Framework Compares and Contrasts to EU Reforms.
