Vice chair of financial services for KPMG Kay Swinburne has been appointed to chair the International Regulatory Strategy Group.
Swinburne, a former MEP and vice chair of the European Parliament’s economics and monetary affairs committee, will take over from ex-City Minister Mark Hoban.
The group, which is co-sponsored by lobby group TheCityUK and governing body the City of London Corporation, is focused on promoting regulation that encourages open and competitive global markets. Their current priorities include the UK’s regulatory framework post-Brexit.
“With the global challenge to recover from the economic impact of the pandemic, the UK setting out its post-Brexit regulatory framework, and regulators seeking to get to grips with climate change and technological transformation, there is a plenty for us to do,” Swinburne said in a 24 May statement.
“Working with the members of the IRSG I am keen to set a policy agenda that enables the financial and related professional services industry to flourish while serving and supporting the wider economy.”
Swinburne has featured on a number of Financial News‘ awards list, including most influential women in Europe in 2020, most influential woman in market infrastructure in 2013 and most influential woman in trading and technology in 2012.
