Jenny joins ICAP from leading African financial services group Standard Bank Group where she was CEO of Standard Bank Plc and CIB International, and most recently Strategic Advisor to the Group CEOs.

She will head the Traiana, TriOptima, Reset, Euclid and ICAP Information Services businesses.

Commenting on the announcement, Michael Spencer said: "This is an important hire for ICAP and for the key businesses within the Post Trade Risk and Information Services division. Jenny is impressive and suitably experienced, having spent her entire career in the global financial markets. The significant time she has spent in investment banking means she brings a valuable insight, as well as deep knowledge of the changing regulatory landscape and, crucially for ICAP, the opportunities this brings in the pre and post trade space. I am delighted Jenny is joining us, and I look forward to working with her as we continue to invest in expanding the innovative range of products and services of the division”.
