Robin joined Reuters in 2004 and following seven years managing parts of the business, became Head of Regulation for Marketplaces, Thomson Reuters. Over four years Robin maintained a deep engagement with regulators around the world, with a focus on the G20 commitments to new regulation of financial markets.

FMR Advisory has been set up specifically to help those institutions wrestling with the regulatory impact of new and impending regulations, whether EMIR, MiFIR, Dodd-Frank or Conduct Risk.
