Kyle Larson is a Vice President in Kroll’s Financial Services Compliance and Regulation group, based in Singapore. Kyle’s responsibilities include furnishing the full suite of regulatory compliance advisory services to clients across global regulatory topics, with a focus and expertise on Singapore MAS and US SEC and NFA/CFTC licensing, regulatory and project-driven matters.
Kyle is responsible for local, regional and global clients with exposure to the financial regulatory regimes in Singapore, the United States, and Hong Kong. Kyle also works with fund managers, licensed brokers and other financial businesses across Asia Pacific, including in mainland China, Korea, and Japan (among others), who must meet certain global best practice standards (especially for those whose local jurisdiction may not have implemented a globally-recognised regulatory framework). He specializes in the integration of MAS, SEC, NFA/CFTC, and SFC regulatory requirements into streamlined policies and procedures, as well as global best practices assessments and due diligence projects.
Kyle utilizes his extensive experience from his time in the US, prior to his relocation to SG, to advise Singapore, Hong Kong, China and regional clients on complex US SEC, NFA, CFTC and FINRA rules that may impact fund managers and brokers based in Asia Pacific. This may include advising on SEC requirements for the Annual Review, regulatory examinations (both mock and actual), marketing materials review, compliance monitoring implementation, and compliance program refurbishments and revitalizations, all while considering the commercial and compliance impact for businesses operating in Asia Pacific.
Kyle is a qualified lawyer, registered with the New York State Bar Association, with experience at corporate law firms drafting, reviewing, and assessing the legal documents that substantiate complex corporate transactions. He holds a juris doctorate (cum laude) from SUNY at Buffalo and a B.A. in philosophy (magna cum laude) from the University of Maryland at College Park.
