Dan Viola

Head of Regulatory and Compliance Group
Sadis and Goldberg
Daniel is the Head of the Regulatory and Compliance Group. He structures and organizes broker-dealers, investment advisers, funds and regularly counsels investment professionals in connection with regulatory and corporate matters. He served as a Senior Compliance Examiner for the Northeast Regional Office of the SEC, where he worked from 1992 through 1996. During his tenure at the SEC, Daniel worked on several compliance inspection projects and enforcement actions involving examinations of registered investment advisers, ensuring compliance with federal and state securities laws. His examination experience includes financial statement, performance advertising, and disclosure document reviews, as well as, analysis of investment adviser and hedge fund issues arising under ERISA and blue-sky laws. After leaving the SEC, Daniel founded VIOCO, Ltd. (“VIOCO”), which provided consulting services to investment advisers and broker-dealers in the field of regulatory compliance, including compliance policy planning and implementation of soft dollar reviews, mock SEC compliance audits, and compliance training for supervisory personnel. VIOCO also served as a consultant to provide mandated corrective consulting to investment advisers that were sanctioned by the SEC. From 1997 to 2002, he served as General Counsel for Andover Brokerage LLC, which was ultimately acquired by SunGard (NYSE:SDS). Andover was a self-clearing member firm of the NASD, currently known as FINRA and a trading/technology firm that provided direct-access trading, order routing, and brokerage and clearing services to professional traders. From 2002 to early 2006, he served as the General Counsel to the Carlin Financial Group, which was ultimately acquired by RBC Capital Markets, LLC. Daniel then founded his own law firm and eventually merged it into Sadis & Goldberg’s law practice in late 2006. Daniel will be taking part in the Panel Discussion ‘Disrupt or be disrupted? Evaluating the emergence of cryptocurrencies and their potential place in your future FX portfolio’ on the 12th September.

  • What are the technological developments being made to facilitate the trading of cryptocurrencies? 
  • FAD or opportunity - Is there a viable place for cryptocurrencies in the FX desk of the future, and what place could they have as part of an investment portfolio?
