Jun 1, 2022

NEW YORK—Scott Pomfret has joined Blue Heron Research Partners as a Senior Advisor. Pomfret’s broad experience in the asset management industry includes nearly a decade as Regulatory Counsel and Chief Compliance Officer at Highfields Capital Management in Boston, a hedge fund with US$15b AUM at its peak, and a seven-year stint as Branch Chief in the SEC’s Division of Enforcement. He also headed PwC’s regulatory practice in its Boston office and conducted internal investigations into violations of the federal securities laws as an associate at Ropes & Gray. He is a frequent writer and speaker on regulatory issues.

In his role as Senior Advisor, Pomfret will bring his experience to bear on the regulatory and compliance challenges that Blue Heron and its valued clients face. In particular, as Blue Heron grows, Pomfret will provide guidance and support to CCO Scott Nussbaum and the company’s senior leadership. The addition to the team reflects Blue Heron’s continuing commitment to prioritizing a rigorous compliance culture consistent with the company’s core values at a time of increasing regulatory scrutiny and requirements.

“A strong compliance culture has always been central to Blue Heron,” said founder David Rynecki. “Scott’s leadership and experience will be a perfect complement to our existing first-class compliance team, so that Blue Heron can continue to deliver critical insights to clients to enhance their investment process while maintaining leading compliance standards.”
