Liquidnet, the global institutional trading network, today announces the appointment of Rebecca Healey as Head of Market Structure and Strategy.
Rebecca is considered to be one of Europe's leading industry voices on market structure, regulatory reform, and financial services technology. As part of her role, she will use her 18 years' experience to collaborate and deliver research and insights for both the European equities and fixed income markets. Rebecca will report to Mark Pumfrey, Head of Liquidnet Europe.
Commenting on Rebecca's appointment, Pumfrey said: "Rebecca is a well-respected thought leader and adviser in the industry. Her deep understanding of the European financial services regulatory environment and the impact policy changes will have on market structure and market participants is a very powerful combination. Her skill-set and knowledge will further strengthen our efforts to help our Members navigate the complexities of UK and European market structure at this pivotal time in the industry – especially important given the UK’s potential exit from the EU."
Rebecca joins Liquidnet from TABB Group where she was Principle European Capital Markets Research Analyst and Consultant, and Incisus Partners, an independent research consultancy she founded in 2015. Prior to this, Rebecca was formerly UK Trade and Investment Officer for the British Embassy in Bahrain and has also held positions at Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs International and Bankers Trust International.
“Having written research on the key impacts of European regulation over the last five years, I am delighted to join Liquidnet in helping to shape future market infrastructure. MiFID II is such a broad topic that at times it appears you are only scratching the surface,” said Healey. “Working with Liquidnet in EMEA Market Structure and Strategy will enable me to specialize, focusing on European equities and fixed income, to understand members’ challenges and work with the Liquidnet team, as well as wider industry partners, to help resolve those issues.”
