FMA General Counsel Nick Kynock
joined the Authority following work in London but his influence upon FMA policy and enforcement is considerable.
His wide experience in financial services regulation in the UK and Europe (he also served on the City of London Law Society Regulatory Committee) give him a perspective and background that pushes him to the top echelons of the Power List.
Before joining Barclays he had worked at Mayer Brown, the US-based legal giant, and then Berwin Leighton Paisner. At both firms he led the London based financial services regulatory teams, advising financial institutions on the requirements of the UK and European regulatory regimes, and the provision of financial products and services.
A powerful force within the FMA, Kynock’s view on key FMA investigations provides a major influence upon New Zealanders.
