The Alternative Investment Management Association has appointed Jennifer Wood as its head of asset management regulation.
Wood was most recently a partner with Dechert, where she focused her practice on advising UK, US, European and Asian financial services firms, investment managers and investment funds on US regulatory matters, including investment adviser and fund registration and compliance matters, fund formation matters and fund governance.
Jiri Krol, AIMA’s director of government and regulatory affairs, says: “We are absolutely delighted to welcome to AIMA someone with Jennifer’s experience and expertise. Her presence will add a notable resource to the association and our global membership.”
Wood adds: “AIMA has a long track record of successful engagement with policymakers and regulators internationally and so I am very glad to be joining the team.”
