Katharine is a regulatory compliance consultant with expertise in technical areas of the rules such as Conduct, CASS, the Individual Accountability Regime (SMCR) and Outsourcing. Katharine has worked in financial services for thirty years in insurance, banking, distribution, and regulation. During that time Katharine developed a passion for supporting smaller financial services firms because they so often find they are expected to be across a broad range of regulations sometimes to a technical depth that takes time to understand and implement. So Katharine setup Leaman Crellin Limited, to do the leg work and provide practical roll out ready documents in their online shop. Her regulatory compliance consultancy practice specialises in providing practical and proportionate solutions for all sizes and types of FCA and PRA regulated business.
Ritchie has Masters Degrees in Physics and Internationl Affairs, which combine nicely for a career trading FX Options. He worked for many years at Merrill Lynch and then Bank of America, in London, New York and Hong Kong, trading large option portfolios in both developed and emerging market currencies. As well as managing sizable risk positions during historically tumultuous markets, these roles also entailed educating many colleagues and a steady stream of graduate trainees about understanding FX Options – experience which Ritchie has brought to the Corellian Academy to continue educating others.
