Prior to joining J.S. Held, Ian Salvatini served as a Senior Regulatory Analyst of Capital Forensics, Inc. (“CFI”). He began his career at CFI in 2017, initially as a litigation analyst. As a Litigation Analyst, Ian participated in an in-depth examination of account performance metrics such as turnover, out-of-pocket gains/losses, allocations, and commissions. This analysis was then used to address various issues of the case.

In 2019, Ian advanced to the role of Senior Regulatory Analyst. He was responsible for supervising and analyzing cases from the time they are received through discussions with regulators and ultimately when the matter is closed by the regulatory agency. He has participated in examinations of mutual fund expenses including expense ratios, 12b-1 fees, and revenue sharing expenses. Other examination areas included share class performance comparisons, 529 plans, UIT performance and expenses, and variable annuity products.

As a Senior Consultant at J.S. Held, Ian contributes to dozens of regulatory projects covering various FINRA and SEC Initiatives as well as enforcement matters and Internal Reviews. He works with a team of consultants to process, validate, and analyze datasets of varying size, sometimes billions of records. Many of the matters involve mutual funds, while others also involve other security types such as UITs, preferred stock and closed-end funds. The team often works directly with Counsel and collaborates with J.S. Held’s team of experts to ensure the methodologies applied are following industry standards.
