ICI Promotes Shelly Antoniewicz to Senior Director of Industry and Financial Analysis

Washington, DC, January 4, 2018—The Investment Company Institute (ICI) announced today that Senior Economist Rochelle “Shelly” Antoniewicz has been promoted to senior director of industry and financial analysis in the Institute’s Research Department. Antoniewicz succeeds Sean Collins in this position, following his promotion to ICI chief economist. In her new role, Antoniewicz will help lead ICI’s research on the structure of the fund industry and its role in financial markets.

“Over the past 13 years, Shelly’s economic expertise has contributed significantly to the Institute’s research and analytical capabilities,” said ICI Chief Economist Sean Collins. “In particular, she has led our work on exchange-traded funds (ETFs), providing vital data and analysis on these important products. She is a strong leader and a problem solver, and I am excited to welcome her into her new position.”  

In her previous role as ICI senior economist, Antoniewicz carried out research on the structure and trends of the US and global ETF, mutual fund, and closed-end fund industries, and on domestic and international equity and bond markets. She also conducted economic analysis to better understand the costs, benefits, and impacts of proposed laws and regulations governing mutual funds and ETFs. Antoniewicz also made a substantial contribution to ICI’s analysis of the financial system in the US and global arenas following the 2007–2008 financial crisis.

Before joining ICI in 2005, Antoniewicz served first as economist and then senior economist at the Federal Reserve Board for 13 years. She earned her BA in management science from the University of California, San Diego, and her MS and PhD in economics from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
