Ex-FSA head Sally Dewar to join JP Morgan Chase

JP Morgan Chase has appointed former FSA head of risk Sally Dewar to work within its risk division.

Dewar joins the bank’s London office in June 2011 as a managing director, reporting to the firm’s global head of risk Barry Zubrow.

Dewar will be tasked with leading the bank’s responses to rulemaking and regulatory initiatives from the likes of the European Union and the US.

Dewar is currently on gardening after leaving the regulator last month.

Speaking to the FT, Dewar said her initial focus would be working on several EU legislative projects, such as the planned changes to MiFID.

She said: “I’ve always been passionate about the reform agenda and getting it right,

“There is still a lot to get right and a lot that can go wrong if people don’t focus on it.”

“It’s very much an externally focused role, about getting on the right stakeholder groups and helping regulators understand the impact of policy before it is implemented.”

  1. The FSA has often perceived risk where there is little of it and not perceived it when the risk is huge.

    That’s Morgan Chase off our list then.

    agree with 1st post. Boycott JP Morgan

  3. “…….helping regulators understand the impact of policy before it is implemented”. Oh yea!! Pity you couldn’t do that when you were sat arouind Lofty Towers with the other parasites dreaming up scheme after scheme to keep yourselves in well oiled jobs and to hell with the consequencies!!

  4. Shocking, what a surprise that an FSA head takes up a roll with a prominent bank. I don’t doubt he FSA have got a lot of credible staff but it seems those hidden agenda’s are ever more visible.
    UK regulation is morally corrupt and it seems to me the banks can afford to pay for a seat at the right table.
    “It’s very much an externally focused role, about getting on the right stakeholder groups and helping regulators understand the impact of policy before it is implemented.”

    Not so much about changing bank practices as influencing regulatory policy.

  5. Reward for a job well done??? Who knows..

  6. Given this womans prominent position everything she has implemented is potentialy tainted due to her second agenda whilst working for the regulator.
    No senior person in the FSA should be allowed to join another Financial Services business for two years to avoid this blatent abuse of position.

  7. Washington Mutual Seizure and gifting.
    Lehman Bros collapse.
    Bernie Madoff Ponzi Scheme.
    Munincipal bond bid rigging scandal.
    Financial meltdown and taxpayer bailout of 2008?
    Mortgage Fraud.
    Silver shorting.

    Boycott Chase banks. ALL OF THEM.
