Exiger names Jake Scrivens managing director of Hong Kong office

He has extensive experience in post-financial crisis bank restructuring.

Exiger, the global regulatory and financial crime, risk and compliance firm, recently announced the appointment of Jake Scrivens as a Managing Director to lead the firm’s Hong Kong office.

According to a release from Exiger, he is a seasoned financial executive who has spent the last two decades working at the epicentre of financial reform, and an expert in post-financial crisis bank restructuring, with a deep specialization in structured finance and emerging markets.

Mr. Scrivens joins Exiger from Barclays, where he was most recently Head of Markets Structuring, APAC, at the firm’s Investment Bank. In that role, he was responsible for structuring activities across all asset classes for the markets business.

While at Barclays, Mr. Scrivens also served as Head of Strategic Credit Portfolio Management Group at Barclays Capital, and as General Counsel in the legal and compliance division in both EMEA and APAC.

Here's more from Exiger:

Michael Beber, President & CEO of Exiger, said: “Jake comes to Exiger from the trenches of financial reform, and his keen understanding of the regulatory risks firms face when operating in emerging markets dovetails perfectly with Exiger’s capabilities in corporate governance and financial crime compliance. This experience, along with his proven record in the APAC market, make Jake the perfect choice to head our Hong Kong office."

Before working at Barclays, Mr. Scrivens held positions with Indosuez W.I. Carr: as Director, Equity Derivatives, where he managed the warrants programs in Hong Kong and Singapore, and as Legal Counsel, where he established the firm’s compliance department in Asia.

Before that, Mr. Scrivens was an Associate with TransAsia Lawyers, one of the leading law firms licensed in the People’s Republic of China. He has also served as Editor for China Law and Practice, a leading publication for Legal and Risk Management professionals investing in China.

Mr. Scrivens began his career as a Barrister under the tutelage of David Green QC, Director of the Serious Fraud Office in the United Kingdom. He holds an LLB with honors in Law from University College London.

Jake Scrivens said: “Exiger is quickly emerging as a premier regulatory, risk, and compliance firm, one that understands that financial institutions operating in today’s marketplace need more than advice; they need real-world solutions to complex challenges. I’m looking forward to helping to build this business and assist firms in the Asia Pacific region to meet their challenges head on."
