Mark Barnard joins The Field Effect
The Field Effect has appointed Mark Barnard as head of securities finance practice and subject matter expert. Mark brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in collateral management, securities finance, prime brokerage, regulation & liquidity management.
With over 25 years’ senior experience most recently as MD at RBS heading Equity Finance, Liquidity Management & Derivatives, Mark plays a leading role in The Field Effect’s securities finance practice. Managing Director David Field said: “I am delighted to welcome Mark to the company to extend our already established clearing and collateral consulting practice. Mark brings significant top tier trading and financing experience to the team.”
“Mark opens up new opportunities for The Field Effect to deploy its change management approach which has been deployed on over 70 sell-side, buy-side, custodian & CCP projects.”
Speaking about his new appointment Barnard said: “I’m looking forward to stepping into the world of consultancy. There are several significant challenges facing the industry including “junior-isation” and groupthink. Banks are still grappling with huge regulatory challenges, often tactically, which will change the face of the securities financing and collateral industry.”
