MiFID and investor protection – changes ahead impact workflow
Robin Poynder is an advisor focusing on Regulation of the OTC Financial Markets, in particular the G20 initiatives and Conduct Risk. Following a career in foreign exchange trading and management, Robin has spent time at Thomson Reuters managing part of the FX&MM business. In recent years Robin has spent a considerable amount of time engaging with Regulators and key market participants around the G20 commitment to regulation and potential consequences on the OTC markets. He has built up a significant network of contacts and experience in this field.
This background gives Robin a deep understanding of the foreign exchange industry, strong understanding of the policies and aims of the newer global Regulatory approach, as well as a recent ‘neutral’ non-bank history – providing a unique insight into how the OTC business is being and will be affected by the recent and impending Regulations such as Dodd-Frank, EMIR, MiFID and related global initiatives. Conduct Risk in particular is a major focus for his work, helping firms understand how a programme to demonstrate change in this area might be made real.
Alongside his conventional role, from 1999-2002 Robin also acted as President of ACI UK, the financial markets association. He sits on the OMFIF Advisory Board and until recently sat on the ESMA Consultative Working Group that is looking at Regulatory Technical Standards relating to MiFID II implementation. He also sat on the ECB FX Contact Group.
Outside of work he is a qualified Rugby coach and referee.
