The FICC Markets Standards Board (FMSB), a standard setting body for the wholesale fixed income, currencies and commodities (FICC) markets, today announces the appointment of Edward Davey as its first Chief Operating Officer.
Most recently Edward was running his own business development and change management consultancy firm and recently supported a large Australian bank to establish a new EU Banking entity in mainland Europe as part of their Brexit programme and also worked with several FinTech companies.
Prior to that he was Global FX Chief Operating Officer at JP Morgan and then held the roles of Head of Strategic Initiative Group and Strategic Planning as well as Head of Product Strategy at CLS Group Ltd, the provider of FX settlement solutions.
Edward qualified as a Chartered Accountant in Australia and also has an MBA from Manchester Business School.
Reporting to FMSB’s CEO, this role will focus on managing FMSB’s working groups and sub-committees as they develop and produce standards, good practice statements and thought leadership publications across a wide range of wholesale FICC markets topics. The role will also focus on expanding FMSB’s membership base and its international reach.
FMSB is a practitioner-led, membership organisation with active participation from almost 50 corporate, buy-side, sell-side, markets services and infrastructure providers.
Martin Pluves, CEO of FMSB, said: “I am delighted to welcome Ed to FMSB as our first Chief Operating Officer. This is an important role for FMSB and our members given we have a large pipeline of work for 2021 and beyond as part of our remit to raise standards in wholesale FICC markets. Ed has significant experience of working within the financial services sector and in delivering organisational improvements. We look forward to working with Ed as part of the FMSB Secretariat.”
