Former SEC Counsel joins Crypto Asset Ratings as a Chief Legal Officer
Crypto Asset Rating (CAR), the Independent Structured Rating Agency, has expanded its global team with the appointment of Jacob Prudhomme as Chief Legal Officer.
In this capacity, Prudhomme will oversee the company's legal and regulatory affairs and will design a compliance program focused on safeguarding the independence and integrity of the CAR analytic process. Prudhomme was formerly Head of North American Compliance at S&P Global Ratings and a former Senior Counsel at the Securities and Exchange Commission, where he specialised in equities market structure and credit rating agency regulation. Most recently, he has been with Corcoran Regulatory Advisors, LLC providing regulatory advisory services to blockchain and fintech companies.
Pramod Attarde, CEO of Crypto Asset Ratings, says of the new addition to the executive management team: "Our team is delighted to have hired for this role an attorney with regulatory and compliance experience in both financial technology companies and in credit rating agencies. Attarde added, "If we are to fulfill our promise of being the leading independent voice on the soundness and investment quality of crypto assets, then we must have an extremely robust compliance program to ensure we avoid even the suggestion that we would compromise our analytics for profit. We look forward to Jacob to import best practices from SEC-regulated rating agencies, such as S&P Global."
