24 November 2011  |  3038 views  |  0 Source: Futures and Options Association

The Futures and Options Association is enhancing its regulatory resources with the appointment of Blake Stephenson as Manager, Regulation, with effect from 28 November.

Blake joins the FOA from the Financial Services Authority (FSA) where he was part of the exchange supervision team. He is also a qualified solicitor.

At the same time, Simon Andrews has been promoted to Director of Commodities, a new role which will see him spearhead the FOA's increased activities in this sector. Simon has been with the FOA for 6 years and has additional oversight of prudential regulation and taxation issues.

Both Simon and Blake report to Kathleen Traynor, Executive Director, Regulation, who will manage the FOA's priorities within the regulatory area.

The formation of the strengthened team is recognition of the impact of the growing regulatory workload facing the exchange traded derivatives industry. "Whether it is analysing of the impact of MiFID/MiFIR or understanding the full implications of ESMA's work programme, the FOA must have the capacity to help steer its members through the regulatory change agenda while sustaining industry growth and enhancing market integrity," says FOA chief executive Anthony Belchambers. "These appointments reflect the importance of that activity."
