Financial Services partner Richard Marshall was quoted by Pensions & Investments regarding the Securities and Exchange Commission's request for more staff and resources in order to continue focusing enforcement actions on investment advisers and private funds in fiscal 2017. In light of the upcoming administration change in the US government in January 2017, Richard noted that changes will be made within the SEC as well.
