According to Alastair Brown, Lombard Risk’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), in a recent statement on the appointment: “Financial services firms in Europe continue to face highly complex regulatory demands and this will be an ongoing challenge for them. As they seek solutions to demonstrate clear compliance trails and robust data reporting, we expect demand to remain strong.”

Jonathan will play an important role in shaping how we develop our solutions, carefully assessing our client’s needs and how we can meet them.
