Complex Financial Futures Expert Donald L. Horwitz Joins Oyster Consulting
Financial services consulting firm hires former General Counsel to Nadex, the North American Derivatives Exchange, Inc.
Oyster Consulting announced today that Donald L. Horwitz, Esq. has rejoined the firm as Managing Director in their Chicago office. Most recently, Don served as General Counsel and Chief Regulatory Officer to Nadex and as General Counsel and Managing Director to IPXI Holdings, Inc. In addition to holding these leadership roles, Don created the world’s first financial exchange for licensing and trading intellectual property (patent) rights.
“Don brings deep experience in derivatives, complex financial futures, and exchange-traded and over-the-counter products, as well as legal and strategic planning for compliance,” explains George Jennison, Oyster Consulting President. “With his experience working with regulatory authorities, Don can see both sides of the compliance coin, making him a valuable asset in a firm founded on the belief that industry experts add more value than career consultants.”
Don will join Oyster Consulting’s industry experts in its Regulatory & Compliance Practice Group, focusing on complex financial futures and other sophisticated investment instruments. He will also uphold the team’s focus on customized relationships and services, which were recognized with the 2014 Hedgeweek Award and the 2014 Alternative Investment Award.
“Oyster has grown significantly in both reputation and size since my previous affiliation with the firm, and I’m excited to be rejoining the team as we expand our focus into derivatives,” said Horwitz. “I look forward to adding my expertise to Oyster’s complete support for financial firms.”
