I have 18 years of consulting, regulatory and risk management experience. The middle portion of this was spent at LCH.Clearnet which I joined as an analyst and left as Head of SwapClear’s middle office – running risk and operations for $300tr of over-the-counter (OTC) swaps. At the height of the banking crisis, myself and Christian Lee resolved the Lehman’s default to LCH – unwinding the highest-risk trades in Lehman’s cleared portfolio. This was the first OTC-cleared default in history and proved the “circuit breaker” concept in OTC markets, paving the way for the G20 to mandate OTC clearing globally.
I am a co-head of Sionic’s global transformation practice – leading consulting teams delivering large scale change with a particular focus on investment programmes, regulation and clearing, to Sionic’s banking, exchange, CCP and buy side clients.
