Monica Rodriguez

Principal Consultant

Monica joined Bovill after nearly eight years at the Financial Conduct Authority, as a market abuse policy expert. She spent nearly four years working in the Market conduct and Surveillance division investigating cases of market abuse, before moving into policy where she worked developing the Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) and advising sell-side, buy-side and issuers on the implementation of MAR.

During her time at the FCA, Monica also worked on the Fair and Effective Market Review (FERM) in the development of the FX Global Code; the market abuse strategy around systems and controls and on Brexit related issues around MAR and transaction reporting under MiFID II and MiFIR.

At Bovill, Monica assists clients assessing their market abuse risks to ensure their policies and procedures are up to date with regulatory requirements under MAR, BMR and the FCA’s SYSC rules. She also helps clients to increase awareness of the regulatory requirements within their firm by providing presentations to employees and Board Members.
