Protiviti, a leading independent risk consulting firm, has strengthened its UK Financial Services Industry (FSI) practice with three significant appointments.
Jacqueline Fenech joins Protiviti as Associate Director from a Big Four firm, where she worked in the Risk Advisory Services practice with a focus on the insurance sector. During this time, she was seconded to the Financial Services Authority for one year in the Solvency II Project Office.
Jay Iyer joins Protiviti as Senior Manager, also from a Big Four firm, and has a broad range of investment banking experience, most recently helping large financial institutions to meet the requirements for MiFID.
Richard Mason joins Protiviti as Senior Manager. Previously Richard was an Executive Director at a leading global asset management firm, where he was co-head for the EMEA Compliance function and was responsible for the co-ordination of the implementation of MiFID throughout the EMEA region.
Protiviti's FSI practice is undergoing rapid growth, with these appointments following the arrival of three new directors in early November.
Andrew Clinton, Managing Director of Protiviti's FSI practice, commented: "The regulatory landscape for financial services companies is constantly shifting and the likes of MiFID, Solvency II and Basel II mean that financial institutions need ever more help to mitigate regulatory risk. Protiviti's expanding financial services industry practice is able to draw on a pool of vastly experienced individuals to provide first rate consultancy to its growing client base."
