STATEMENT OF THE INSURED RETIREMENT INSTITUTE ON THE CONFIRMATION OF

ELAD L. ROISMAN TO THE SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION

The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) released the following statement from IRI President and CEO Cathy Weatherford in response to today’s Senate vote to confirm Elad L. Roisman as Commissioner to the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC).

 "IRI congratulates Elad Roisman on his Senate confirmation to serve as a SEC Commissioner. His experience as a senior Senate committee staffer and his prior service as a counsel to former SEC Commissioner Daniel Gallagher will enable him to hit the ground running to fulfill the SEC’s important financial regulatory responsibilities. We look forward to working with him on issues relevant to our members and our industry.”

Roisman most recently served as chief counsel at the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs where he worked to develop and draft bipartisan legislation to amend the 2010 Dodd-Frank regulations.

Before joining the Senate banking staff in 2014, Roisman was an aide to former SEC Commissioner Gallagher. Roisman also previously worked at the New York Stock Exchange.
