TP ICAP, a major interdealer broker, announced this Friday morning through the London Stock Exchange (LSE) that it has appointed its current interim Chair of the Board’s Risk Committee and non-executive director, David Shalders, as the permanent Chair of the Committee.

While here, he was based in senior operations and IT roles. His most current job before his departure was Global Chief Operating Officer for Global Banking and Markets. He was also the Global Head of Operations for Corporate Banking and Financial Markets.
During his decade-long stint at RBS, he led the Global Banking and Markets regulatory response to Basel 3. Shalders has also held positions at Greenwich NatWest (now RBS), S G Warburg (now UBS), JP Morgan and Accenture.
