He will be based in IBSI’s headquarters in London, UK.

Robin also has the additional responsibility of managing the publication’s advertising function and will play an active role along with the senior management in building IBSI’s events portfolio including the global SLT (Sales League Table) awards and other FinTech events across key markets.

Robin joins IBSI from GlobalData Plc, a London-based data analytics and consulting company. Before GlobalData, Robin worked as the Chief Executive Officer at CPI Financial, a financial news portal with multiple financial industry magazines in the Middle East. He was responsible for setting editorial policy and strategy for the business.

His many years of global editorial and leadership experience focused on the financial services industry will bring significant value to IBS Intelligence clients globally, especially the readers of the IBS Journal.

To this Robin added, “FinTech is already changing the way banks and their customers interact. This is an exciting time to cover the evolution of banking services – from the highly complex to simple outreach satisfying the needs of the unbanked and underbanked. I look forward to keeping the industry on top of this fast-moving universe.”

Robin has also authored and contributed to several books and pamphlets, including a guide to world financial markets, a study of corporate pensions, four books on various aspects of Islamic finance, guides to investment and financial regulation, and several macro/microeconomic studies.  He has a BA in International Politics from the University of Lancaster and is also qualified as a Financial Adviser, holding the Certificate in Financial Planning.
