RegTek.Solutions, the provider of global regulatory reporting solutions, today announced that it has hired Chris Cornish as a Consultant Business Analyst based in London. Chris joins RegTek.Solutions from IHS Markit where he was a Senior Business Analyst and Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR) specialist. He was previously at ICBC Standard Bank where he held a similar position, focusing on SFTR implementation.
At RegTek.Solutions Chris will focus on Validate.Trade, RegTek.Solutions’ flagship product used by G16 banks and leading asset managers to monitor the quality of their reporting data. In particular, with ESMA’s SFTR implementation confirmed for Q2 2020, Chris will be closely involved in the further development of the award-winning Validate.Trade for SFTR, the securities lending industry’s first independent reporting quality assurance solution that launched in early 2018.
“With 15 years of experience in financial services consulting and a specialist knowledge of key regulatory reforms including SFTR, MiFID II, EMIR and Dodd-Frank, Chris amplifies our subject matter expertise and ensures we are well positioned to help firms achieve sustainable compliance and successful SFTR implementations in 2020,” comments Brian Lynch, RegTek.Solutions’ CEO.
Chris will support the ongoing work to enhance reporting quality for RegTek.Solutions’ clients, providing insight into product design, prioritisation and testing, alongside working directly with clients implementing RegTek.Solutions product offerings.
Chris Cornish comments, “During my career I have worked closely with service providers and end-users to manage the complexity of meeting new and changing regulatory requirements, and I recognise the real value that RegTek.Solutions delivers to some of the world’s largest banks. I’m looking forward to working with them as they continue to enhance and expand their market-leading products, principally for SFTR which will be a significant undertaking for the securities lending industry.”
