NASAA has announced that IOSCO Secretary General David Wright will address NASAA's annual conference next month in Salt Lake City. Prior to his appointment as head of IOSCO in 2012, Wright spent more than 34 years working for the European Commission at the highest levels of the European Union's political and regulatory system.
During his service with the European Commission, Wright played key roles in designing and finding political agreements on the major European securities legislation such as the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MIFID) and the Transparency, Prospectus and Market Abuse directives. Wright also acted as rapporteur on the De Larosière Committee on financial services reform and represented the European Commission in international fora such as the FSB and G20.
SIFMA CEO and former U.S. Senator Judd Gregg will deliver the conference's keynote address at a luncheon on October 7. Conference registration forms and the full schedule of events are available on the NASAA website. Regular conference registration ends on September 27.
