Business areas Overview

Recognising the importance of cross-asset programmes to the GBM business, our CIO Richard Herbert has recently announced the creation of a new leadership role within GBM Technology (Head of Regulatory & Strategic Programmes). This is single point of accountability for the delivery of specific cross-asset initiatives as well as responsible for the portfolio management function of GBM Technology. This new structure enables us to more effectively respond to new regulatory and strategic demands and align to our business stakeholders.

The “change” portfolio comprises the following initiatives:
  • Portfolio Management and the Brexit programme
  • FRTB and Basel III
  • Interbank Lending Rate (IBOR) transition
  • Service Sustainability
  • Location Strategy
  • GBM Capital Management Programme
  • Oversight of the GBM Conduct programme.

The team will operate a federated model; delivery, development and associated budget continues to sit within the respective asset classes and Regulatory & Strategic Programmes will be accountable for the overall business outcomes.
