The awards acknowledge the most-read authors across the JD Supra platform, which reached thousands of C-suite executives, in-house counsel, media, and other professionals during 2015.
Smyth was one of 200 authors selected from among 34,000 published authors for the level of visibility and engagement he attained with readers in the investment management sector. Additionally, Smyth's article, "SEC Issues Risk Alert, Smacks E*Trade on Penny Stock Sales," was the most popular post in 2015 with investment management professionals.
"That is very funny," Smyth said. "I generally assume nobody reads these things, and I genuinely hope my friend at E*Trade didn't read this one, because he's a good guy and I didn't mean to beat up on them."
