Andrew joins the consultancy from his previous role as Executive Director, Derivatives Regulatory Operations at Goldman Sachs International, and will be helping to lead Quorsus’ regulatory reporting practice.
Quorsus’ regulatory reporting practice provides specialised advice and insights across the post-trade technology, data, and compliance sectors while incorporating and shaping industry best practices. Andrew’s core responsibilities will be around leading the development of the regulatory reporting practice and serving as a trusted advisor in Quorsus’ ongoing and future client initiatives.
Carolyn Van den Daelen, Chief of Staff and Managing Partner, Quorsus said: “We are growing significantly at Quorsus, and essential to sustaining that healthy growth is making strategic hires who will lead our most important areas. As a financial services change expert with strong relationship building skills and multi-jurisdictional experience across the project lifecycle, Andrew is the perfect choice to help lead our high performing regulatory reporting practice.”
During his time at Goldman Sachs, Andrew managed the 30-strong European derivatives reporting team. In this role, Andrew’s organisational design and performance improvement skills played a crucial role, as he instigated a front to back review of the firm’s reporting obligations and subsequently significantly improved the accuracy and completeness of the firm’s reporting. Prior to his time at Goldman Sachs, Andrew was a consultant at challenger consultancy ElixIRR, in the Capital Markets Practice where he implemented EMIR at the original go-live in 2014, built a Dodd-Frank trading surveillance solution, and remediated historic MiFID transaction reporting issues.
Andrew Pinnington said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining Quorsus to lead the reporting practice at such an exciting time for the business. I’ve been following the company’s progress over the past year and couldn’t help but be impressed by the quality of the team they have assembled. I’m really looking forward to working with our clients to address their most pressing challenges and deliver high quality, tangible outcomes”.
At Goldman Sachs, Andrew met regularly with European regulators to influence their oversight and suggest ways in which they can address ambiguity in regulations. He has participated in the FIA, ISDA and the RegTech Council industry steering groups, forming industry best practices, and shaping the future of financial regulation. His involvement at the RegTech Council is centred on driving innovation and solving complex regulatory challenges through machine learning, data modelling and other innovative technology solutions. Andrew holds a BA First Class Honours in Social and Political Sciences from University of Cambridge, Clare College.
