ICMA appoints Head of Fintech and Digitalisation


5 September 2022 ICMA is pleased to announce the appointment of Georgina Jarratt as Managing Director, Head of Fintech and Digitalisation and as a new member of the Executive Committee.

Fintech and digitalisation are transforming financial markets which are now well embedded in all of the association’s work in primary, secondary, repo and collateral fixed income markets. ICMA  has a number of technology initiatives already under way including the Common Domain Model (CDM) for repo and bonds and the Common Data Dictionary for primary bond markets, as well as running established working groups on DLT and blockchain in bond markets and market electronification.

Bryan Pascoe, ICMA Chief Executive said: “I am delighted to be welcoming Georgina who brings a huge breadth of experience across transformation, digitalisation and leadership. Georgina will be instrumental in advancing our work in Fintech and digitalisation in a broader and more strategic way to bring further efficiency, standardisation and subsequently, automation to the capital markets. Her extensive experience in executive leadership and people management will also help drive forward our diversity and inclusion agenda.”

Georgina has spent most of her career, which spans three decades, running large and complex programmes of change across a variety of industries including Financial Services, Telecoms and Utilities. She has been with HSBC since 2005 where she has held a number of roles including Global Programme Director, Prime Services, Global Head of Business Transformation, Global Banking and Markets and most recently as Head of Transformation, Digital & Innovation, Private Banking.
