Third Financial is pleased to announce the appointment of Stuart Richards as Chief Risk Officer to strengthen the regulatory and operational risk oversight function as the company continues to grow its customer and asset base, and address new markets.
Stuart has a wealth of experience in financial services having begun his career at Baring Asset Management in 1992 where he was an investment manager in their emerging markets equity team. In 2006 he was a founding partner in a boutique asset management firm where he established their compliance and risk function as well as implementing a full front to back operational platform. Stuart has spent the last 5 years at a wealth and asset manager fully remediating their compliance and operational risk function as well as implementing new operational systems.
"I’m very excited about joining Third Financial and the challenge of maintaining strong and robust oversight as the firm continues to grow strongly over the coming years" said Stuart.
