London Stock Exchange Group today announced that Margaret Bailey has joined its UnaVista division as Head of Sales for the Americas. Margaret has over 20 years financial services experience, having previously worked for Lombard Risk, Traiana and Fortis Bank.
Margaret will oversee UnaVista's sales team in the Americas region based out of the Group's New York office. Margaret's extensive regulation and financial services technology experience made her the ideal candidate for the role.
Michael Leach, Head of Sales for Software & Data, Information Services at London Stock Exchange Group commented:
"We are very excited to welcome Margaret to London Stock Exchange Group. Margaret has a proven track record of leading sales teams, which will be vital as we continue to expand UnaVista's offering of matching and reconciliation services in the US."
Margaret Bailey added: "I am delighted to be joining London Stock Exchange Group. UnaVista provides a multi-asset solution addressing the needs of organisations across the post-execution, post-trade, and post-settlement, which is becoming increasingly important in this new regulatory environment. I'm looking forward to developing the business in the US, providing solutions which will enable organisations to fulfil their obligations under Dodd-Frank and other regulations."
UnaVista opened their Asian office, based out of Hong Kong, in 2010 and last year expanded their global presence into the Americas with their New York office. UnaVista provides a number of regulatory services to the market including pan-European Transaction Reporting, and solutions for Dodd-Frank, Form PF and EMIR.
