I help financial institutions address the combined challenges of regulation, capital efficiency and organisational effectiveness. Having begun my career as an interest rates derivatives trader at Paribas, I became head of the foreign exchange trading team. I helped create the market risk department and led the fixed income market risk teams, before becoming deputy COO of fixed income front office. Upon the merger of BNP and Paribas, I became the COO for BNP Paribas Fixed Income worldwide, managing funding, capital, balance sheet, transfer pricing agreements and a comprehensive regulatory implementation programme for fixed income worldwide. Today, my involvement with SIFMA, GFMA, ISDA, FBF, EBF, regulators and central banks, enables me to understand the context and intention of regulation, as well as its impact on end-users.
