ISLA Welcomes a New Board of Directors

[LONDON, Thursday 3 November 2022] – The International Securities Lending Association (ISLA), a leading industry trade body representing the common interests of securities lending and financing market participants across EMEA, is delighted to announce the appointment of its next Board of Directors.

Chaired by Ina Budh-Raja, our first female Chairperson since the formation of the Association, alongside Jonathan Lombardo as Ex-Officio, Alessandro Cozzani as Vice Chair, and Philip Winter as Treasurer, the newly elected group will serve for a three-year term (the full list of ISLA Board of Directors can be found here).

The fifteen Officers and Directors, who represent a geographically as well as functionally diverse group of member firms from across the securities lending and financing industry, will build upon the great work of the previous Board. Working closely with the Association’s senior management team, they will continue to ensure that ISLA’s strategy remains progressive, and meets the demands of its ever growing and evolving membership, as well as society more broadly.

Andrew Dyson, CEO, ISLA, commented “I would like to thank our outgoing Board, led by Jonathan, for their support in helping to shape the Association we see today. As we look to the next stage in our evolution, I would like to welcome Ina as our new Chair. It is also great to see other familiar faces returning to the group to provide that level of continuity, alongside individuals and firms that have never been represented on the ISLA Board before. I very much look forward to working with this new and diverse group.”

Ina Budh-Raja, Chair of the ISLA Board, added “Delighted to be re-elected as a Director, and truly humbled and thrilled to be the first Chairwoman of the ISLA Board since the Association was established some 35 years ago. The last term gave me the opportunity to bring my combined legal and product experience to the table in a wider industry context, and am now very much looking forward to building on the great work that Jonathan led-on during his tenure in this capacity. The strength of experience and diversity of skillsets within the group is immense, and provides a strong foundation, as we navigate unprecedented evolution in our market.”
