David Weild IV

Chairman and CEO Weild & Co


David Weild IV is the Chairman and CEO of Weild & Co. The studies that he co-authored have documented the long-term decline in equity capital formation in the United States and provided the core arguments that gave rise to the JOBS Act and many of the specific provisions contained in the JOBS Act. For these reasons, he has been called “The father of the JOBS Act.” David has also called for a “JOBS Act 2” or “JOBS Act Part 2” - language increasingly heard on Capitol Hill. The work has been cited by a broad range of legislators, regulators, academics, the IPO Task Force and the White House Jobs Council leading up to the JOBS Act. David has testified in Congress (most recently in June 2013) and at the SEC (most recently at the Roundtable on Decimalization) on these and other market issues and attended the signing of the JOBS Act by President Obama in the Rose Garden on April 5, 2012.

​David Weild IV is a stock market expert best known for his position as Vice Chairman of NASDAQ. David is also known as the "father" of the JOBS Act and has been involved in drafting legislation for the US Congress.
