IMA director of markets Jane Lowe to depart


Investment Management Association director of markets Jane Lowe is leaving the organisation by mutual consent.

Lowe is set to leave at the beginning of November to pursue new opportunities.

The news follows the IMA’s announcement to restructure several regulatory roles and no “like for like” replacement will be appointed in Lowe’s absence.

IMA chief executive officer Daniel Godfrey says:“We’re sorry that Jane has decided it was time to pursue other challenges. I want to thank her on behalf of the IMA for her significant contribution and to wish her all the best in the next phase of her career.

“Given the regulatory and political environment that we face, I am sure that her skills, knowledge and experience will be in high demand and that we will be in regular contact.”

As part of the IMA’s restructuring, Julie Patterson was appointed as director of regulatory affairs with Richard Metcalf joining from the International Swaps and Derivatives Association to take up the newly created role of director of regulatory affairs for institutional & capital markets.
