Washington, D.C. —Today, the Bank Policy Institute announced it has hired Lauren Anderson to the role of Senior Vice President & Associate General Counsel. Ms. Anderson will formally join the organization on October 28, and will oversee BPI’s advocacy across a range of domestic and international issues, including bank recovery and resolution planning, policies to address TBTF reforms and cross-border banking (focusing on host country treatment of foreign banks). She brings with her over a decade of experience in financial regulation and resolution oversight, most recently serving as Senior Advisor at the Bank of England and, before joining the Bank of England, serving as Special Advisor to the Deputy of Policy at the FDIC.
“We are delighted that Ms. Anderson has decided to join the BPI team,” said BPI President & CEO Greg Baer. “She contributes a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the areas of international regulation and resolution planning and further enhances BPI’s ability to effectively advocate on behalf of our members before domestic and international regulatory agencies.”
During her tenure at the Bank of England, Ms. Anderson advised the Governor on policy issues related to Green Finance; she led the Bank of England’s work on Brexit, which included financial stability, prudential policy and legal matters affecting the U.K. financial system; and prior to the U.K. referendum, she headed up the Bank’s resolution execution and planning function, which included representing the Bank across a number of international regulatory fora. Most notably, Ms. Anderson led the international regulatory effort to establish changes to cross-border trading documentation resulting in the finalization of the Resolution Stay Protocols.
At the FDIC, Ms. Anderson served as the principal staff advisor to the Chairman’s Deputy for Policy working on a number of large bank closings from 2008-2009, the drafting and negotiation of Dodd-Frank, and the establishment of the international regulatory response to the financial crisis.
Ms. Anderson holds a JD / MS from Tulane University, an LLM from the University of Leeds and a BA from the University of Denver.
