Knott Named CEO of Post-Trade Risk and Information Services at ICAP

Former Standard Bank chief executive to join IDB.

Knott will join ICAP from Standard Bank where she previously held a number of C-level positions.

Former Standard Bank Plc and CIB International chief executive Jenny Knott has joined interdealer broker ICAP as the CEO of the group’s Post-Trade Risk and Information Services divisions.

Knott will join ICAP on 5 August and will be based in London heading up the Traiana, TriOptima, Reset, Euclid and ICAP Information Services businesses, reporting to Michael Spencer, ICAP group chief executive officer. Knott will also sit on the global executive management group of ICAP.

While at Standard Bank Knott also held global corporate and investment banking chief financial officer, and chief operating officer positions, with prior roles at Nomura and UBS.

"This is an important hire for ICAP and for the key businesses within the Post-Trade Risk and Information Services division," says Spencer. "The significant time [Knott] has spent in investment banking means she brings a valuable insight, as well as deep knowledge of the changing regulatory landscape and, crucially for ICAP, the opportunities this brings in the pre- and post-trade space."
