Alice Yurke Discusses SEC Hiring Spree with StructuredRetailProducts.com

The U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC) is adding staff for its specialized division of trading and markets unit (formerly the division of market regulation). Alice Yurke, partner in Alston & Bird’s Financial Services & Products Group, discussed the potential meaning behind the surge of new SEC employees with StructuredRetailProducts.com.

“Recall that the SEC imposed a hiring freeze last year, even though there was certainly a need for persons with this expertise,” said Yurke. “I think the expansion is a sign that there’s a thaw at the Commission.”
