Jeffrey Engelsman has joined The TCW Group as global chief compliance officer with responsibility for development, oversight and assessment of the firm’s policies and procedures to ensure compliance with government and industry regulations in all jurisdictions.
Engelsman is based in Los Angeles and reports jointly to David Lippman, president and chief executive officer of TCW, and Meredith Jackson, executive vice president and general counsel.
Engelsman has nearly 20 years of experience in asset management compliance. He joins TCW from New York Life Investment Management, where he was most recently a managing director and chief compliance officer for more than 70 open-end and closed-end funds.

“Jeff is a highly qualified individual with a strong track record running legal and compliance programs for large asset managers, and we are confident his extensive experience will be invaluable as we continue to grow our business globally,” says Lippman.
