London - JWG has announced the appointment of Blythe Barber as its new managing director.

With over 12 years of capital markets experience, Blythe Barber has held a number of senior positions including director at Expand Research (subsidiary of the Boston Consulting Group), managing principal at Capco and senior trader at Schneider Trading Associates. Having worked with the top 30 global banks, Blythe has an extensive network throughout the front, middle and back-offices of the largest financial services industry firms and a strong set of senior relationships, and is ideally placed to help inject JWG into exciting new partnerships.

Blythe will be working to help serve the global financial services marketplace with the world's first regulatory change management solution, JWG's RegDelta platform. Built to meet the challenge of compliance with a growing mountain of financial regulation, JWG's RegDelta delivers a complete and up-to-date 'golden source' library containing the documentation financial institutions need to maintain control and manage regulatory change. It combines this database with highly configurable, powerful search and retrieval tools, allowing users to find and prioritise quickly the regulations that matter to them.

PJ Di Giammarino, CEO, JWG, says: "I am delighted to have another strong leader on board the team. As the industry tightens the nuts and bolts of G20's regulatory framework, he will help our clients face a pile of paperwork more than three Eiffel Towers tall by offering solutions which enable them to spot, know, assess and address every piece of relevant regulation."

Blythe Barber, managing director, JWG, says: "I am excited to become part of the team at JWG, and have the opportunity to build upon the strong foundations with the sell-side, buy-side and market infrastructure players. I am looking forward to helping to lead this team of smart people and using our unique and innovative product suite to help both current and new clients leverage the power of JWG's collaborative approach."
