Investment banking IT consultancy Rule Financial has made a trio of senior hires in London and the U.S.
In the British capital, Rule has added Jim Warburton as global head of the investment banking domain group. That team also gets Jeremy Taylor, an operational processing and derivatives specialist.
Rule also hired Ciaran Henry as country manager for the U.S.
Warburton joins Rule after stints at Citigroup and Credit Suisse, while Taylor joins from UBS, where he lead the over-the-counter derivatives documentation group. Henry is formerly chief technology officer at Merrill Lynch and JPMorgan Chase.
“Our consultants are the foundation of our business and we recruit and develop domain experts who truly innovate to solve the needs of the world’s leading banks," CEO Chris Potts said. "We fully intend to develop these capabilities in 2012 with more investment in our domain experts and delivery teams, to offer world-class support to our growing client base.”
