About

Jo is an experienced banking professional with an established record of accomplishment in client relationship management, trade finance origination, syndication, and distribution across the European and US markets. She started her career at Barclays in London where she worked in various roles in FI coverage, trade origination and trade finance syndication. Due to her natural curiosity, Jo has built strong knowledge of the fintech sector, and left banking to gain first-hand fintech experience. She then moved to Lloyds Bank where she is responsible for export finance with a particular focus on UK Export Finance, as well as a portfolio of banks, asset managers and multi-lateral agencies.

Jo is highly passionate about developing up and rising talent and promoting banking in general and trade finance in particular as an attractive career path, and has helped to launch the ITFA Young Professionals initiative in September 2014 which has set out the task to connect the future leaders of the trade world and ensure they have access to experienced industry professionals and best in class training. Jo is also a founding member of the ITFA Fintech committee and as such supports the bank/NBFI fintech dialogue to ensure new technology and innovative ideas find their way into the day-to-day operations of ITFA’s members.
