The expanding influence of the FMA has seen a central role for Nick Kynoch since returning from the UK where he was global head of conduct risk and contentious regulatory compliance at Barclays Bank and from partnership with global legal firm Mayer Brown.
He is on the frontline of regulatory and enforcement action with the FMA, leading the enforcement and litigation policy and governance at the FMA as well as the corporate, legal and audit teams, investing him with highly significant power in the local business scene.
His wide experience in financial services regulation in the UK and Europe (he also served on the City of London Law Society Regulatory Committee) give him a perspective and background that pushes him to the top echelons of the Power List.
Before joining Barclays he had worked at Mayer Brown, the US-based legal giant, and then Berwin Leighton Paisner. At both firms he led the London based financial services regulatory teams, advising financial institutions on the requirements of the UK and European regulatory regimes, and the provision of financial products and services.
