FOA appoints new head of regulation
The Futures and Options Association has appointed former Financial Services Authority policy leader Natasha Stromberg as head of regulation, with core responsibility for working groups on energy, power, emissions, metals and other commodities-related areas.
Stromberg joins FOA from the FSA, where she was most recently a senior associate in the derivatives market infrastructure and policy unit. In this role, she acted as lead supervisor of the London Metal Exchange. In addition to her time at the FSA, where she was the policy lead for global commodity market regulation, she also has experience in the investment banking industry, including risk, client clearing and business management roles at Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank and ABN AMRO.
“We are delighted to welcome Natasha to the FOA regulatory team,” said Kathleen Traynor, executive director, regulation at FOA. “Her experience will be a huge asset at a time of growing regulatory change and as FOA strives to assist members in the implementation of core regulations such as EMIR and MiFID/MiFIR.”
