Swank Capital appoints general counsel


Barry Y. Greenberg has joined Swank Capital as general counsel and chief compliance officer.

He also serves in that capacity for The Cushing MLP Funds.

Greenberg is responsible for oversight of the firm’s legal and regulatory compliance functions. He will also work closely with senior management on product development and other strategic initiatives.

"We are very pleased to have Barry join our team as general counsel and chief compliance officer," says Jerry Swank, founder of Swank Capital. "Barry is a significant addition to our firm and we are confident that the investment community will concur. His background in private and public funds and seven years with the Securities and Exchange Commission provides the critical perspective necessary to accomplish our long-term growth strategy; he is a great fit for us."

Prior to joining Swank, Greenberg was a partner in the investment funds practice of Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld in Dallas. He was responsible for advising private US and offshore funds, mutual funds and investment advisers on a wide range of issues including entity formation, governance and regulatory compliance matters.

"I’ve been following the market for master limited partnerships and have worked with Swank Capital as a client of Akin Gump for several years," says Greenberg. "I’m looking forward to new challenges and the opportunity to contribute my insights on products and strategies as a member of management."

Greenberg’s career includes ten years as in-house general counsel for a mutual fund sponsor and manager of alternative investment funds and seven years in the enforcement division of the US Securities and Exchange Commission. 

Swank Capital and The Cushing MLP Funds are headquartered in Dallas, Texas.
