Following an early career in the UK Department of
Trade & Industry, Chris was a market regulator at the Association
of Futures Brokers & Dealers, and then at the International
Petroleum Exchange (latterly as a Director). At the IPE, he developed
successful new trading mechanisms such as Exchange of Futures for Swaps;
Volatility Trades; and Settlement Trades.
Between 1998-2000, he founded and developed NewClear, a generic transaction confirmation concept, still widely used in global markets.
Chris now works
mainly in Scotland, with Nordic Enterprise Trust, to develop new
partnership-based enterprise models, and related financial products and
His work at ISRS is focused on a new generation of networked markets – which will, in Chris's view, necessarily be dis-intermediated, open, decentralised and, therefore, resilient.
