EuroCCP CEO Diana Chan was recently profiled in Financial News as one of the FN100 for the European financial markets.
The FN100 winners were selected by the Financial News’ editorial staff in recognition of their influence over their areas of business, leadership within their sector, performance over the past year and their capacity to shape their business and industry in the future.
Financial News, an online daily news service and weekly newspaper, is the leading source of information covering the investment banking, fund management and securities industries.
Diana Chan, CEO of EuroCCP
Leadership in Europe
“Chan charts an unconventional voyage to the top” was the headline of the article about her, published in Financial News’ April 4 issue. It tells the story of Chan’s life and career from a two-year-old fleeing China on a fishing boat, to Harvard Business School where she obtained an MBA, culminating with her 2007 appointment as EuroCCP’s CEO.
Financial News reporter Tim Cave describes Chan’s leadership of the EuroCCP team and credits her as a leading voice advocating interoperability in Europe, which, if approved by the regulators, could improve post-trade efficiencies by giving trading firms the opportunity to select a clearing agent that best suits their needs. Chan cites pride in managing a talented team that has worked toward helping “make the [European] securities markets safer for customers.”
EuroCCP: ‘Best Clearing House’
EuroCCP, which went live in 2007, received the “Best Clearing House” award from Financial News in 2010 for its excellence in trading and technology, as voted by a panel of 50 market leaders and industry experts. Chan noted that the award was a “wonderful endorsement by the industry.”
This year’s FN100 list reflects the industry’s continued focus on regulation, the increasing importance of corporate governance and the work that has gone into restructuring companies in the wake of the financial crisis. To read the article, visit www.efinancialnews.@
