Baringa Partners, the management consultancy specialising in the commodities, energy and financial services sectors, today announced the appointment of Simon Anderson as a Partner within the Markets & Trading (M&T) business unit.
In his new role, Simon will lead the growth of Baringa’s process transformation, operating model and front-to-back office transformation offerings within M&T, building on its success in risk and regulatory change. This will include delivering Baringa’s end-to-end trading capabilities to new and existing investment bank and hedge fund clients. Simon’s appointment is a key part of Baringa’s broader ambitions to grow its Capital Markets presence: within the next five years it aims to number more than 100 consultants, operating across the UK, Europe, US and Asia.
Simon joins Baringa from Deutsche Bank, where he was responsible for transaction management business architecture. As Director and Senior Business Architect in the Corporate Banking & Securities division, he was focused on the trade lifecycle operating model. This included developing operating models across the major asset classes with a focus on the middle office. As such, he brings a wealth of experience in the capital markets industry, including a deep understanding of regulatory change in OTC derivatives, and in particular how it affects the banks comprising the G15.
“I’ve known Baringa for a number of years and have witnessed it grow a reputation for consistently impressing clients,” Simon commented. “Baringa has created a virtuous circle of high performance, great results and outstanding employee engagement. I’m excited to be joining a firm with such a strong foundation and massive potential.”
“It has been another strong year for Baringa in Capital Markets,” said Gareth Campbell, Lead Partner for Capital Markets. “We have completed a host of successful projects with investment banks, who are benefitting from our front-to-back knowledge of trading and Simon’s vast experience in the sector made him an obvious choice to continue this progression. We hope to build on this positive position, and to achieve this we are committed to recruiting people of the highest calibre.”
