A senior financial markets consultant and SME based in Japan, specialising in Central Counterparty Clearing (CCP), Bilateral Margin, Collateral Management, Risk Management and Regulation, including ESMA/EMIR, US regulation (CFTC/DFA), Basel 3 as they apply globally but with a focus on Japan and non-EU/US jurisdictions.
As Special Advisor (APAC) to SETL Development Limited, along with my Tokyo team, I am directly involved in providing business and technical input to the development and implementation of blockchain technology across a broad range of financial markets.
I have worked with a number of major global CCPs, helping them design clearing services that meet domestic and foreign regulatory requirements. In addition, I work with both buy and sell-side firms to understand and make best use of clearing services. In conjunction with this I provide advice to SEFs (current and planned) and other trading platforms (ETPs, MTFs and OTFs) in their search for new markets and opportunities.
In my spare time I write for various international and Japanese financial services publications on an ad-hoc basis.
