BIO : I started my career in compliance and financial services at the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority in Sydney, Australia. After two years supervising superannuation funds, building societies and Australia’s medical indemnity provider an opportunity then arose to apply for a role at the Financial Services Authority (FSA) in London. I interviewed over the phone and then moved from Sydney to London. I worked in the Major Groups Division at the FSA supervising a large life assurer and a large composite insurer. While at the FSA I had the opportunity to co-author a paper on Offshoring risk, following a review programme of firms with operations in India. After 3 years at the FSA I moved from regulation into operational and financial risk at EY. I worked across all financial sectors on a range of projects from credit risk for a multinational bank in New York to implementing an operational risk framework for a life assurer in Edinburgh. I then decided to move in house into group compliance at RSA which gave me the opportunity to travel to a number of countries to assess the compliance frameworks of RSA’s operations in these territories as well as manage interactions with the UK regulator/s. After 6 years I moved to Direct Line Group. I now manage a small team of regulatory risk professionals who co-ordinate responses and lobbying on regulatory developments, manage all regulatory interactions and report key regulatory (prudential, conduct, data protection) issues to the Executive, Board Risk Committee and the Board.
