I lead Sionic’s internationally renowned Clearing team that has advised CCP and exchange clients across the globe on developing best practice solutions. I was previously at LCH where, at the height of the 2008 banking crisis as head of SwapClear’s Default Management Group, I successfully unwound Lehman’s $90trillion portfolio. Along with the rest of the team, we unwound approx. 66,000 trades across five currencies and handled unprecedented sums in the process. Today, my clients include banks and many of the world’s international and regional exchanges and central counterparties. Since 2021, the team has been working in Qatar advising on the development of its capital markets infrastructure including the design and implementation of a securities CCP.
