Sean Farrell joins IQ-EQ’s New York team as Managing Director

IQ-EQ is pleased to welcome Sean Farrell, who joins our New York City office.

During his 20 years in regulatory compliance, Sean has served as a regulatory consultant, a chief compliance officer (CCO), and a Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) examiner.

Prior to joining IQ-EQ, Sean founded Sentinel Regulatory Compliance, LLC, where he was responsible for all client-facing matters while providing internal control design, regulatory compliance reviews, regulatory gap analysis, regulatory examination assistance, employee training and development, and outsourced CCO services.

Sean has also previously served as the CCO of Greenlight Capital, Inc. and its affiliated entities, where he oversaw all domestic and foreign regulatory compliance matters for four SEC-registered investment advisers and one adviser authorized by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Sean began his finance career at Deloitte and Touche, LLP in 2002 as a financial statement auditor where he earned both his Certified Public Accountant and Certified Fraud Examiner designations. Later, he moved to the SEC office in New York, performing examinations of registered investment advisers and registered investment companies.

Before moving into the finance sector, Sean served six years on active duty with the United States Air Force (USAF) and earned an undergraduate degree in accounting from Rutgers. He continues to serve in the USAF Reserve as an emergency management professional, and volunteers in his personal time with organizations dedicated to veterans, disaster response and youth enrichment.

Commenting on Sean’s new position, Kathy Malone, Senior Managing Director at IQ-EQ U.S., said:

“We are so excited to have Sean join the team. His expertise in the registered fund space, as well as private funds, will be a valuable addition for our client base. He brings an in-house perspective that our clients appreciate, and we look forward to his contributions.”
