Damon Batten

Practice Lead, Capital Markets

Damon is an expert in global regulation for traded markets and post trade activities.

Focussing primarily on Brokers and the Sellside, Damon helps clients to understand the impact of the growing regulatory burden on their business – including MiFID 2, EMIR, CFTC Swap Dealer, Mandatory Clearing, Bilateral Margin and the new global Prudential standards (SA-CCR and FRTB). In many cases this has included assisting with interpreting the extra-territorial impact of EU and US rules, for clients across APAC, South Africa and the Middle East.

In previous roles, Damon has provided practical advice and guidance to Investment Banks, CCPs/Exchanges and Buyside firms on the impact of new regulatory initiatives. He also has a strong track record of leading teams of change specialists to deliver regulatory change projects.

Damon began his career at the UK Financial Services Authority (now the PRA), and before becoming a consultant held regulatory change-related roles at LCH.Clearnet and HSBC Group.
