SEC Hires Economist Dulaney of Securities Litigation Consultant

Tim Dulaney, a senior financial economist at the Securities Litigation & Consulting Group Inc., is scheduled to join the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission as a financial analyst on Monday.

Dulaney will work on analyzing complex securities in the Risk and Examinations Office, which is part of the Division of Investment Management at the government agency in Washington, he said in a telephone interview.

The office analyzes industry data, focusing on risk taking activities of investment advisers and institutions, according to a description of the office on the SEC’s website.

Dulaney, who joined the consulting firm about two-and-a-half years ago, has co-authored 11 working papers and peer-reviewed publications on securities from structured notes to exchange-traded funds, according to the company’s website.

An August report that Dulaney co-authored found that market-linked certificates of deposit were 7 percent less valuable than fixed-rate CDs.

The move was announced on SLCG’s blog this morning.

Kevin Callahan, an SEC spokesman, confirmed Dulaney’s position.
