The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) announced today that Lois Radisch has joined the DTCC’s Legal Department in New York as managing director, with primary responsibilities for activities involving the US regulated subsidiaries at DTCC.

Radisch will report directly to Larry Thompson, DTCC’s managing director and general counsel. The three regulated subsidiaries are the Depository Trust Company (DTC), National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC), and Fixed Income Clearing Corporation (FICC).

Radisch joins DTCC from the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), where since 1998 she was senior counsel for corporate and commercial banking, involved in restructuring auction rate securities and leading complex financing deals, advising RBC’s global businesses on the Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) and providing development and legal oversight of the bank’s loan trading activities, among other things.

Prior to 1998, she worked for Brown & Wood LLP as an associate specialising in securities lending and project finance. From 1994 to 1996, she served as a senior consultant in legal risk management for the Participants Trust Company (PTC), analysing legal risk concerns and constructing a program for clearing, custody, financing and settlement of Federal Reserve book entry securities held at PTC, as well as conducting an analysis of payment systems risk submitted to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Radisch also worked as vice president and assistant general counsel for J.P. Morgan & Co from 1993 to 1994, specialising in UCC Article 8, and developed products and templates for custody, payments systems, securities lending and cash management. She also managed regulatory projects and submissions to the Fed.

From 1984 to 1993, she represented DTC, NSCC and PTC while working with Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP as an associate in the banking and corporate department. Among other projects, she helped design and document programs and financing for securities depositories, including same day settlement protocols and risk management analyses, rules and procedures. She also managed the regulatory relationships of DTC and PTC with the Federal Reserve, SEC and NY State Banking Department.
