While at the SEC, Aaron was a senior manager in the agency’s Complex Financial Instruments Specialized Enforcement Unit, focusing on securitizations and the retail marketing of structured products. Aaron also led one of the SEC’s intra-agency working groups that focused on cross-border transactions as well as attorney and auditor liability. At times, Aaron represented the agency on the President’s Financial Fraud Task Force and the RMBS Working Group.
