Managing Director, Financial Services Regulatory Practice

Scott joined PwC in July 2013 and assists financial services clients – primarily advisers to hedge funds, private equity funds, and registered investment companies – in a wide variety of securities regulatory compliance matters.  Scott’s areas of focus include: leading regulatory practices for advisers, SEC examination readiness, compliance program development and risk management, and regulatory reporting.

Scott has deep securities regulatory experience, having served for more than 11 years in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, most recently as an Assistant Director.  In that role, Scott helped form and lead the agency's Asset Management Unit, an 80-person national specialized group focusing on misconduct involving hedge funds, private equity funds, and investment companies.  Scott collaborated extensively with other SEC divisions and law enforcement agencies on asset management priority areas and emerging risks, and developed a highly successful initiative to detect hedge fund fraud through the use of proprietary risk analytics.  Scott also supervised a number of significant investigations concerning improper conflicts of interest, valuation, disclosure, fees, and trading practices.

Scott holds an LL.M. degree in Securities and Financial Regulation from Georgetown University, a J.D. from American University, and B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania.
