Antoniewicz succeeds Sean Collins, who was recently promoted to chief economist at ICI.
In this new role, Antoniewicz will 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,” Collins said. “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.”
Antoniewicz was promoted from senior economist, where she conducted research on trends in exchange-traded and mutual funds. She also analyzed costs, benefits, and impacts of proposed laws and regulations governing mutual funds and ETFs.
Before joining ICI in 2005, Antoniewicz worked for the Federal Reserve Board for 13 years, first as an economist and then as a senior economist. She earned her BA in management science from the University of California, San Diego, and her MS and Ph.D. in economics from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.
