“AMAC set diversity and inclusion as a top priority at its inaugural meeting,” said Chairman Ed Bernard, in a statement, referring to the committee’s first meeting in January.
Gilbert Garcia, a managing director at Garcia, Hamilton & Associates, a Houston-based fixed income asset manager, will moderate the panel, which will focus on improving diversity and inclusion in the asset management industry.
The SEC committee meeting will also include a panel on issues related to data privacy and the impact of technology on investment advice.
The latter panel will include four panelists: Stuart Rubinstein of Akoya; Lowell Putnam of Plaid; Eric Clarke of Orion; and Hardeep Walia of Schwab Asset Management Solutions.
