Who's Moving Where In Wealth Management? - CISI, Libra

The latest moves in senior wealth management from across Europe.

The Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment has appointed Eugene Kiernan as president of the CISI National Advisory Council for Ireland. He is taking over from Frank O’Riordon MCSI who held the position for the last four years.

Kiernan joined the global financial services professional, not-for-profit body CISI in 1998, becoming a fellow in 2005. He has over 35 years’ experience in the asset management and funds industry.

He began his career at Irish Life Investment Managers, initially as an investment analyst, and then fund manager, before moving on to executive roles in firms such as AIB investment Managers and Appian Asset Management, where he had a wide range of roles including asset allocation and manager selection. Kiernan is a regular contributor to the media (print, TV and radio) on investment and market issues.

Kiernan has also given keynote addresses to major industry conferences both in Ireland and the US.

The Libra Association has appointed former Credit Suisse financial crime compliance chief Sterling Daines.

At Libra, which is a payments project backed by social media giant Facebook, Daines has the role of chief compliance officer. He has been prominent in the financial crime compliance industry, primarily focused on anti-money laundering, sanctions, anti-bribery, fraud and anti-corruption measures in both the public and private sectors.

Prior to Credit Suisse, Daines was deputy head of financial crime compliance at Goldman Sachs. Before that, he held positions as a principal in the forensic and dispute services practice at Deloitte Financial Advisory Services and head of its US forensic data analytics practice.
