Having spent the past eight years working in Dubai and Qatar, Michael was instrumental in the establishment of NASDAQ Dubai (then known as the Dubai International Financial Exchange ) by obtaining licences to operate an exchange and a clearing and settlement facility. Following this, Michael then went on to manage the regulatory side of the exchange and was responsible for the listing, market surveillance, membership and compliance functions.
He then went on to work with the Qatar Financial Markets Authority where his role included working in areas of licensing, capital markets, the implementation of the QFMA’s corporate governance code and the harmonization of the anti money laundering laws between regulators.
I am very excited to announce Michael’s appointment and encourage you, as a valued client of the firm, to get in touch with him directly should you have any questions relating to compliance within the financial services sector.
