Richard has 35 years banking experience, the last 24 of which were spent working in treasury risk management roles in corporate and investment banking.
In his last role at Barclays he was a senior manager running the UK and Ireland Corporate Foreign Exchange business, responsible for the team servicing mid to large corporate clients.
Prior to this, he managed the Southern England Corporate Risk Management team providing bespoke risk management policies and solutions for both Foreign Exchange and Interest Rate exposure.
Richard has extensive experience in structuring and selling FX and Rates derivatives and has helped many corporate clients develop their risk management strategies, often assisting in presenting bespoke solutions at board meetings.
He understands the importance of peer analysis and is an advocate of dynamic risk management. In addition to assisting clients manage their transactional flows, Richard also has experience in helping to manage event lead risk.
The last decade has seen an increase in regulation and as a result Richard is acutely aware of the need to consider the suitability of a product for his clients. He has developed both policies and product registers to ensure appropriateness in terms of both product and pricing.
His decades of experience together with his calm and structured approach make Richard a well respected member of the community across both the banking and corporate world and he was a frequent presenter and speaker at KBI (key business institutions) events across the UK and Ireland.
In his spare time Richard enjoys kayaking, cycling, surfing and skiing.
