Considerations in Decision-Making – Gary Barnett

Gary Barnett – U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

The regulator has to be an enabler. But their mission is to protect investors and help preserve the quality of the market. There’s a mission there that has to be preserved in the face of change.

Gary Barnett

Deputy Director of Division of Trading and Markets, Securities and Exchange Commission

In this video from MarketsWiki Education’s World of Opportunity event in New York, Gary Barnett, deputy director, division of trading and markets with the Securities and Exchange Commission, explains the importance of decision-making. Barnett studied philosophy in college and was great with numbers and understood cash flow, but avoided public speaking. He quickly realized it was a fear he needed to conquer. The ability to stay flexible and have a decent amount of humility while always being creative are Barnett’s keys to a success.
