Robinson was hired this month and will work alongside Chris Pickles to raise awareness of the Financial Instrument Global Identifier (FIGI), formerly the Bloomberg Global Identifier, that Bloomberg is promoting as a global standard for securities identification.

Before joining Wipro, Robinson was solution partner and practice lead of capital markets consulting at EMC. His career also spans work in the project management office at Barclays Capital and stints at Omgeo, Deutsche Bank Securities and the Bank of New York before it became BNY Mellon. Robinson has participated in a number of industry groups including ISITC, the EDM Council and the Open Financial Data Group.

Commenting on Robinson’s appointment, Peter Warms, head of Bloomberg’s open symbology initiative, says: “The addition of Richard Robinson showcases Bloomberg’s commitment to further promote awareness of the FIGI globally.”
