RELATED TOPICS​

The Investment Company Institute (ICI) has named Jennifer S Choi as chief counsel of ICI Global, the program through which the ICI conducts its international work.

Choi (pictured), has held several international roles within ICI, most recently as associate general counsel for global capital markets policy. She served as ICI’s associate counsel for international policy from 1999 to 2005. Choi also spent four years in an international policy role at the Investment Adviser Association.
 
As chief counsel, Choi will help lead the Institute’s global policy work on cross-border legal and regulatory matters affecting ICI and its members. She will report to ICI Global Managing Director Dan Waters. Choi will be based in Washington, DC, travelling frequently to ICI Global’s London and Hong Kong offices, and will serve as a member of ICI’s senior management.
 
“Jennifer is a strong leader and a critical thinker with a deep understanding of our membership and the most pressing issues they face on a global scale,” says Waters. “Recently, she played a crucial role in the industry’s preparation for MiFID II, including resolution of regulatory conflicts around cross-border compliance with research payments. Her expertise and professionalism will be an asset as we deepen the Institute’s global policy engagement.”
 
Before joining ICI in 1999, Choi worked at the US Securities and Exchange Commission, including as an assistant director in the Division of Investment Management in the Office of Disclosure Regulation, and as special counsel for the task force on investment adviser registration. She also served as special counsel in the Division of Market Regulation (now the Division of Trading and Markets) in the Office of Market Supervision. Choi began her legal career as an associate at Wilmer, Cutler and Pickering.
 
A native of Los Angeles, Choi holds a BS in economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and a JD from the George Washington University National Law Center.
 
Choi’s appointment to ICI Global chief counsel is effective 11 December 2017.
