Societe Generale equity head joins FCA

The FCA has appointed Societe Generale head of equity advisory for Asia Pacific Catherine Bradley as a non-executive director.

The appointment is for a three-year term starting next month.

FCA chairman John Griffith-Jones says: “Catherine will bring to the board the benefit of her considerable industry experience across a number of global investment banks and jurisdictions.

“I am looking forward to working with her to help ensure the FCA can continue to take forward its objectives.”

Bradley says: “I am looking forward to playing a full part in helping the board shape the strategic direction the FCA will take in the years ahead. It is an exciting time to be joining with many challenges and opportunities ahead of us.”

Bradley joined Societe Generale in June 2013, and prior to that worked for Credit Suisse, most recently as head of equity-linked solutions for Asia Pacific.

She has also worked for Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, BNP Paribas, UBS and Merrill Lynch.

There is one comment at the moment, we would love to hear your opinion too.

  1. Seems to be a lot of chiefs at the FCA ? all ready to “shape and direct”; who will do the practical ?

    You have to hand it them (FCA) for an organisation with a catalogue over complicated, unworkable rules and regulations they just keep getting away with it !!

    Can they really justify the (I would imagine) huge cost for another ?
