Nigel Webb is a Senior Managing Director and head of the Financial Services practice based in London. His 30 year career has encompassed both consulting and business roles across a very broad range of the wholesale banking world.
An econometrician by training, Nigel’s early career was spent at Drexel Burnham and Banker’s Trust where he was involved in the pricing and structuring of complex interest rate derivative products. Later, as a Partner at Arthur Andersen, he was responsible for forming and building a practice consulting to major financial institutions on the design and implementation of firm wide risk management. As worries about market risk increasingly evolved into worries about market abuse and rogue trading, his scope of practice expanded to encompass risk and control frameworks across the broad range of market, credit and operational risks.
Following a period at JP Morgan during which he was responsible for Risk and Technology for the EMEA Alternative Investments Business, he has for the last 8 years, principally undertaken work investigating and remediating regulatory breaches by both small and substantial financial institutions.
