Morgan Stanley’s Collier Rumoured to be Heading to Thomson Reuters

Subscribe to our newsletter

Following its furious spate of hiring new execs from vendors and financial institutions over recent months, data giant Thomson Reuters is rumoured to be adding yet another prominent industry figure to its ranks in the near future: current executive director and head of EMEA government relations for investment bank Morgan Stanley, Nick Collier. Collier, who has been a high profile figure in promoting the regulatory focused work of industry associations such as the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME), is rumoured to soon be joining recent starters such as ex-Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) exec Rob Heggarty and ex-Omgeo exec Tim Lind at the vendor.

Collier joined Morgan Stanley in June 2007, where he has had overall responsibility for EMEA government relations and has been an active member of AFME’s EU Public Policy Committee. Prior to that, he was head of regulatory policy at the International Capital Market Association (ICMA) for a year. He joined ICMA in February 2006 from Instinet Europe, where for five years he was director of international compliance, risk, regulatory and government affairs.

He was previously head of the European office of the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) and the UK Treasury’s financial attaché to the EU for a period of three years. His career began at the Bank of England.

The appointment of Collier would make sense for the data vendor, given its push to get closer to the market and his experience on the user side of the fence. His expertise in the risk and regulatory function would also help to boost Thomson Reuters chances of winning business for its Elektron, Eikon and Enterprise platforms in a market highly sensitive to regulatory change.
