SEC Exam Chief Bowden Leaves for Private Sector

Bowden was head of the SEC’s Office of Compliance Inspections and Examinations, becoming director in June 2013. He joined the SEC in November 2011. Before his work at the SEC, Bowden had a long stint at Legg Mason Capital Management.

Bowden made financial media headlines when he commented at a private equity event, “By far, the most common observation our examiners have made when examining private equity firms has to do with the adviser’s collection of fees and allocation of expenses. When we have examined how fees and expenses are handled by advisers to private equity funds, we have identified what we believe are violations of law or material weaknesses in controls over 50% of the time.”
