RBC I&TS strengthens regulatory team

RBC Investor & Treasury Services (I&TS) has bolstered its Europe and Asia Pacific governance and regulatory solutions team with the appointment of Wendy Phillis as managing director.

Phillis will lead the governance and regulatory solutions team from RBC I&TS’s London office.

She joins RBC I&TS from ICAP, where she was chief risk and compliance officer for nearly three years. In that time, Phillis established the markets operator’s global risk management strategy.

Phillis previously spent 16 years at State Street where she was senior managing director in charge of risk and compliance.

Andrea Horton, global head of governance and regulatory solutions at RBC I&TS, said “Wendy Phillis’s experience and deep industry knowledge will be of significant value as we navigate and manage the evolving regulatory landscape.”

“ [Her] expertise will also be of critical importance in ensuring our services continue to support our clients’ needs against the backdrop of regulatory change.”

The appointment of Phillis comes shortly after RBC I&TS’s recruitment of Michelle Hall as director of UK business management. Hall is responsible for delivering business plans, status reporting and analysis of metrics to ensure internal governance and controls for the RBC I&TS UK business.
