Much of the interesting action in post-financial crisis regulation is occuring on the international level, through the FSB and its network affiliates. Now comes news that the SEC's international strategy is going to be coordinated by someone from academia, namely Eric Pan, from Cardozo Law School. Eric will join the SEC's office of international affairs, "where he will oversee the development of international regulatory policy," as the press release puts it.
“I am pleased to welcome Eric to the Office of International Affairs. In serving as an academic fellow this past year, Eric quickly established himself as a senior leader,” said Ethiopis Tafara, Director of the SEC’s Office of International Affairs. “Eric has tremendous intellectual skills and a remarkable ability to identify solutions to seemingly intractable issues in the regulation of cross-border activities.”
As for professors, Eric joins commissioner Troy Paredes, ex Wash U, at the agency. Somewhat rare to see an academic in a financial diplomacy job. Accordingly, we're wishing Eric the best over here at the Glom.
