The Institute for the Fiduciary Standard has added four industry notables to its Board of Advisors, joining Vanguard founder John Bogle and Tamar Frankel, law professor at Boston University.
The new advisory board members are former SEC Commissioner Luis Aguilar, noted advisor Ron Carson, author and consultant Dan Solin and former academic Woodrow Leake.
Institute President Knut Rostad (a regular blogger for ThinkAdvisor) said in a statement that the new advisory board members will “provide their expertise to further the Institute’s mission and assist in programing.” Rostad said “2016 was a high note for the Institute and 2017 programing will only expand,” saying the Institute’s “research and education programs are more vital than ever for advisors and investors.”
Aguilar was appointed to the Securities and Exchange Commission in July 2008 by President George W. Bush and reappointed by President Barack Obama in 2011. Departing the agency at the end of 2015, Aguilar became the eighth-longest serving commissioner in SEC history.
