The International Capital Market Association (ICMA) is pleased to announce the appointment of two additional professionals to its policy team. Both Christian Krohn and Ruari Ewing have taken up newly created posts within the Regulatory Policy department during February.

Commenting on the appointments Nick Collier, Head of Regulatory Policy said: “The Association is committed to providing the highest professional standard of service to its global membership though its advocacy work at national and international level. I am delighted that we have been able to fill these new positions in the team with such high calibre individuals who already have such relevant practical experience in the field of financial regulation”.

Christian Krohn joins ICMA after four years at the Financial Services Authority, the UK regulator, in the Markets Policy Department where he led FSA policy development on the Transparency Directive and worked on clearing and settlement. At ICMA he will lead the Association’s work on the implementation of the Transparency Directive.

Ruari Ewing has over six years direct specialised experience of debt capital market transactions, gained whilst at his previous position at Allen and Overy in Paris. His responsibilities at ICMA will include support for its primary market activities, where the Association has played an active role in shaping the Prospectus Directive and continues to monitor its impact on the market, post implementation and work on the Islamic finance initiative.
