Garth Hinton joins RiskBusiness

Ex head of op risk for EMEA at Citigroup departs for RiskBusiness as executive director for the Asia-Pacific region

LONDON – Operational risk advisory firm RiskBusiness International has appointed Garth Hinton, ex-head of operational risk for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) for Citigroup, as executive director for the Asia-Pacific region.

Hinton has a wealth of industry expertise, having represented Citigroup on numerous industry committees, including the UK FSA’s Operational Risk Steering Group, several FSA sub-committees and the Risk Management Association’s KRI Library Steering Committee. He was also responsible for developing and implementing Citigroup’s successful application to adopt the advanced measurement approach (AMA) for its UK activities, the first successful application in the UK and Citigroup’s first successful application globally. Hinton is a chartered accountant and has worked extensively in the treasury, trading and sales, and investment banking areas of finance.

“The operational risk discipline continues to develop at a staggering pace and the complexities now facing operational risk practitioners as we move into this third wave of evolution are significantly greater than before,” says Hinton. “Demands from senior management in terms of tangible and proven value contribution within an organisation will become increasingly centre stage. I am very pleased to be joining what I consider to be the leading global operational risk consultancy in the business.”
