Douglas Elliott

Partner, Public Sector Practice and Co-Leader, Oliver Wyman (MMC)

Mr. Elliott is a Partner at Oliver Wyman in New York. He focuses on public policy and its implications for the financial sector. Lately, that has increasingly moved to the “new” regulatory topics such as cyber risk, data ownership and usage rights, fintech regulation, and cryptocurrencies.

He frequently appears on panels or as a speaker for the Basel Committee, FSB, Fed, IMF, World Bank, Bank of England, ECB, ESRB, European Commission, JFSA, Asian Development Bank, US Treasury, OCC, and other official bodies, as well as at trade group and industry functions.

Prior to Brookings, he was a financial institutions investment banker for two decades, principally at J.P. Morgan. He worked across the range of financial institutions clients, including banks, insurers, and asset managers. He was primarily an M&A investment banker, but also worked as an equities analyst and in capital markets.

He has testified multiple times before both houses of Congress and participated in numerous speaking engagements, as well as appearing widely in the major media outlets. The New York Times has described his analyses as “refreshingly understandable” and “without a hint of dogma or advocacy”.
