LONDON (Reuters) - HSBC Holdings
HSBC said Ruth Horgan would take on the role from April 2, responsible for developing strategy, standards, global systems and policies on compliance. It will exclude areas related to financial crime after HSBC last month separated that compliance function from other areas, just before it was fined a record $1.9 billion for U.S. anti money-laundering lapses.
Horgan will be based in London and joins from accounting firm KPMG, where she has been a partner since 1999 and most recently was its EMEA regional audit partner for Credit Suisse
