BPL Global has announced the appointment of Anna Morgan (pictured) as its new legal director. In her new role, Morgan will support and advise on legal matters, working closely with the claims department and advising on regulatory matters and policy wordings.
Morgan, a qualified lawyer with a background in finance law, joins the company from Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group. Prior to that, she worked for more than six years in international law firm Reed Smith’s banking and finance department, and took secondments to Barclays Commercial Bank and RBS.
“I am very excited to be joining BPL Global at a time of increasing focus on legal issues from those on the frontline of developing the CPRI product,” Morgan said. “Having worked with BPL Global in the past, I’ve always been impressed by their professionalism and expertise. After seeing first-hand the benefits the CPRI product can bring to banks in terms of enabling business as well as the capital-relief advantages, I am pleased to be able to lend my perspective and knowledge to help it develop further.”
“As an accomplished legal expert with both in-house banking experience and familiarity with the CPRI market, Anna will be an invaluable resource for the BPL Global team, and instrumental in our ongoing effort to optimise the CPRI product for clients,” said James Esdaile, managing director of BPL Global. “We welcome her to the team.”
