The new appointment sees Tyler join A&M’s Financial Industry Advisory Services team as Managing Director. In his new role, his extensive career within treasury related projects will be drawn on for his new task as the spearhead of the firm’s Treasury Advisory practice in Europe, which will include strengthening the firm’s capabilities in prudential risk, treasury and Asset/Liability Management (ALM) matters. He will be based in London.
Peter Briggs, Global Practice Leader of A&M’s Financial Industry Advisory Services, says, “Ian’s arrival adds a valuable new dimension to our practice. Financial institutions today are exposed to a constantly evolving landscape of financial risks and regulation. Ian’s deep understanding of how to identify and manage these risks, as well as his in-depth knowledge of financial markets, will allow A&M to lead the way in providing effective treasury management for financial institutions across Europe.”
Tyler adds, “Whilst the pace of regulatory change is starting to abate, treasurers can’t yet relax as there are still a number of areas that will attract increasing regulatory focus in the coming months. These include decisions on Minimum Requirement for own funds and Eligible Liabilities (MREL) requirements, assessment of Interest Rate Risk in the Banking Book (IRRBB) capability, and quality of recovery planning.”
