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.”
