Harshad Pitkar, who runs a regulatory reporting & risk compliance consultancy in New York, and Alastair Brown, whose prior roles include CEO of Lombard Risk & CIO of RBS International Banking, join Mike Bagguley, formerly COO at Barclays International, as Board Advisors
Inforalgo, the Capital Markets data automation specialist, has announced two additional high-profile appointments to its board of advisors. Harshad Pitkar runs a regulatory reporting and risk compliance consultancy in New York, and Alastair Brown was formerly CEO of Lombard Risk and CIO of RBS International Banking.
The two new Board appointments are a further significant endorsement of Inforalgo’s smart data solutions for Capital Markets. Both will help to shape Inforalgo’s market position across its product portfolio.
Harshad, whose own risk and compliance consulting business, RegEdge, complements Inforalgo’s will help capitalise on Inforalgo’s growing prominence in automating regulatory reporting on both sides of the Atlantic.
Alastair will help to amplify the mounting market buzz around Inforalgo’s cloud-based data connectivity and management solutions. Today these play an increasingly critical role in simplifying financial institutions’ complex and costly connectivity with multiple trading platforms. As well as reining in costs, financial firms need to gain more control and visibility of all of their transaction data for management reporting and compliance purposes.
Welcoming Harshad and Alastair to the business, Jordan Ambrose, Inforalgo’s CEO, said, “We are honoured that Inforalgo is attracting such prestigious, high-profile interest and attention from across the global financial industry. We could not be more pleased to have Harshad and Alastair on board to help us capitalise on the significant new wave of business growth that lies ahead for our company.”
Inforalgo also recently welcomed Mike Bagguley, formerly COO at Barclays International and a respected financial investment industry leader, as an investor and board advisor. Taking up the position, Mike highlighted the immense potential of Inforalgo’s powerful data integration solutions which allow Capital Market transactions to be recorded, processed and reported in sync and with end-to-end visibility, aided by smart automation. This removes considerable pain for financial teams, which can now trade freely without worries about data integrity or compliance.
