The International Centre for Financial Regulation has announced the appointment of Nicole Hergarten as director of training with immediate effect.

One of the three main objectives of ICFR is to help market participants to identify and tailor training programmes to their needs in a rapidly evolving regulatory landscape.

Hergarten’s (pictured) primary focus will be the creation of an online catalogue of existing education programmes and to address gaps in the current offerings. In addition, she will build partnerships with accredited bodies to create offerings capable of meeting international and cross-industry requirements.

Barbara Ridpath, chief executive of the ICFR, says: "Nicole has an excellent understanding of educational issues which further adds to the expertise of our growing team. The current crisis has demonstrated the ongoing need for training on regulation, compliance and risk management. One of the ICFR’s top priorities is to help financial professionals and regulators to access training that suits their needs."

Hergarten joins the ICFR from McKinsey where she most recently held the post of practice manager capital markets and investment banking division. Prior to joining McKinsey, she was executive director of Goldman Sachs FICC from 2000 and before that served as executive director at CIBC World Markets.

Hergarten has several years of consultancy experience with financial institutions across the Asia Pacific region, including two years with a leading e-learning provider for financial products in Hong Kong.
