HSBC’s EDM Head Hinds Departs for Pastures New

Share article

HSBC’s data management champion and regular FIMA speaker Sally Hinds is leaving the bank this week after more than four years as global head of EDM of HSBC Global Banking & Markets. Although she has not yet indicated where she will resurface, it is likely she will continue her career in the data management world.

During her time at HSBC, Hinds has been charged with heading the EDM team at its investment bank, including both market data and data operations. She joined the bank back in 2005 as global head of market data technology, after working as a consultant at Capco. In mid-2006 she assumed responsibility for the bank’s instrument reference data and then in January 2007 was appointed global head of EDM for both the investment bank and for HSBC overall. She has therefore been in charge of static data maintenance for the investment banking division of HSBC and market data for the entire HSBC group.

Over the last couple of years, Hinds has been engaged in putting into practice the bank’s One HSBC programme, which involved the rationalisation of the group’s various EDM teams to bring together support for all of the various divisions of the bank into one central team.

Prior to HSBC, Hinds was a managing principal at Capco for a year and the head of the data practice at another consulting firm, Buttonwood Tree Group, also for a year. She spent six years at data provider Reuters as head of its technology partnership programme. Prior to Reuters, Hinds was head of market data for Union Bank of Switzerland for three years and communications and market data manager at Credit Suisse First Boston Securities for three years. She began her financial services career as a marketing assistant at Dow Jones Telerate.
