Delta Capita has appointed Karan Kapoor as the new head of regulatory change and technology, based in London.
Kapoor brings more than 10 years of bank regulation-driven business and technology change management experience, spanning the Central Securities Depositories Regulation (CSDR) Dodd Frank, the second Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II), Basel III and the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR).
Most recently, he managed the CSDR initiative at a global investment bank where he led a team to quantify the commercial impact of the CSDR settlement discipline regime, whilst supporting the design of target state technology and process solutions to deal with penalties and mandatory buy-ins.
At Delta Capita, Kapoor will help clients benefit from the firm’s digital assets and CSDR project accelerators such as DC-Transform and DC-Modus.
Commenting on his new role, Kapoor commented: “This is a great time to be joining Delta Capita following the recent Prytek investment. In the short term, I will be leading our CSDR delivery services where Delta Capita has some great technology assets to help banks track, trace and monitor operational breaks throughout the settlement workflow. Looking forward I am excited to be helping shape and build out Delta Capita’s strategic managed services.”
Steve Vinnicombe, head of Delta Capita’s global consulting unit, added: “As we evolve our offering to be driven by technology assets and deep industry knowledge, Karan Kapoor brings a wealth of relevant experience in regtech as well as bank operational efficiency, finance and risk data transformation and specific regulatory regimes. We are delighted to welcome him to the team.”
