Conduct Risk Speakers

Chris Van Homrigh

Independent Consultant; formerly ASIC’s Regional Commissioner for New South Wales & Head of Investment Banks

Chris Van Homrigh is a banking and financial services consultant specialising in conduct, governance, risk, compliance and regulatory matters.

Chris was formerly ASIC’s Regional Commissioner for New South Wales and head of its Investment Banks team covering investment banks, hedge and private equity funds, retail derivatives, retail structured products, and credit ratings agencies.  Chris was a member of ASIC's Audit Committee, and chaired or was a member of a number of ASIC's Project Boards and Steering Committees.

At ASIC amongst other things, Chris initiated and led ASIC’s work on conduct – work which described by the then Chair of the Australian Financial Markets Association as “world leading”.

Prior to joining ASIC, Chris had a wealth of international and domestic experience primarily in debt markets.  Chris spent 10 years with Société Générale and was its Managing Director and Head of Securitisation for Asia Pacific.  Chris established Société Générale's securitisation business in Canada after having been head of the North Asian business based in Japan.

Chris spent the 10 years prior to Société Générale with Citibank mainly in the securitisation and structured finance markets, and before joining Citi spent 5 years working in chartered accounting firms in Australia and England.

Having worked in in the UK, Japan, Canada and Australia and for Australian, French, and US institutions gives Chris an understanding of the cultural nuisances that may impact conduct.

As such Chris’s experience has put him in a unique position to globally view conduct and culture from a regulator’s perspective, but with the understanding of issues from a banker’s perspective.
