I have spent over 27 years in the financial industry, my first 14 years in investment banking. I led teams in market data, index and portfolio construction, equity derivatives strategy, and research and trading. I occupied senior positions at Goldman Sachs, Deutsche, and Dresdner banks. More recently I have spent 13 years in Asset Management where I’ve developed policies at SWIP for collateral management, counterparty risk, derivatives, and valuations. At Standard Life Investments I helped develop the GARS product in the areas of product control and risk management. Finally, at BlackRock, I led the Derivative Valuations and Analytics group and headed up both the EMEA and Asia Pacific valuation and pricing teams.
