Federal Reserve Board Hires New Auditor, Clive W. Blackwood

Perhaps in answer to a growing conservative call for an audit of the Federal Reserve, Clive W. Blackwood was named executive vice president and general auditor by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.  

Blackwood will take office June 1, 2015 and will be responsible for conducting internal audits at the New York Fed. He was hired by, and will be reporting directly to, the Board of Directors about the nature of the audits. He will also liaison between the Office of the Inspector General of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as well as the Government Accountability Office.

“Clive has distinguished himself as an auditor and a leader both at the New York Fed and across the System and he will be a great general auditor,” said William C. Dudley, president and chief executive officer of the New York Fed.

Blackwood holds a bachelor's of science degree in accounting from NYU and is a Certified Internal Auditor, Certified Information Systems Auditor, Certified Financial Services Auditor and a Certified Bank Auditor. He has worked in various capacities at the Federal Reserve for 10 years. Prior to that he worked as an audit director at American Express and auditor at KPMG.

If you're an investor with all of your assets tied up in the stock market and cash, you might want to consider a few diversification strategies. Gold is the oldest asset in the world and it's inflation proof. Bitcoin is the gold standard for the cryptocurrency world, which is the fastest growing asset class in the world. Diversifying your portfolio into one or both of these assets can help to insure your portfolio against a stock market crash or inflation. Most importantly, it can help to safeguard the gains you've made over the last 10 years.

Please note that there are other companies that sell gold and Bitcoin on the market, and you should always do your research when making decisions about your portfolio. Just like your personal health, if you're planning on having major surgery, you need to get a second, and sometimes a third, opinion. You want to make sure your surgeon is good and has performed the procedure many, many times.  In the same way, you need to trust your broker and you need to make sure they are reputable. This is the process I used when looking for a broker to recommend.

Full disclosure: RegalAssets compensates me for everyone I send their way, but I would receive compensation from any company I chose to recommend. The only broker I'm recommending is Regal, primarily due to its innovative product offering in my favorite commodities - gold, precious metals and cryptocurrency like Bitcoin. They also have a distinguished track record for success (see below).




Next Steps: Use Regal as one of your options and compare against them. Your other brokers should be able to offer the same level of service and the same low rates. The kit is free and it will provide you with a basis for comparison. Don't wait, get started today. Fill out the form below to get your free investment kit.
