Former FCA enforcement investigator Charles Hastie becomes regulatory head at the legal and compliance services provider in London

Charles Hastie, former enforcement investigator at the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), has joined legal and compliance services provider Clutch Group as regulatory head.

In his new role, Hastie will develop strategic solutions for the firm’s clients, as well as establishing ongoing liaisons with government officials and regulatory bodies.

‘Clutch is the standard bearer’

“Clutch Group is at the cutting edge of technological development and the services they provide deeply impact their key vertical markets,” says Hastie.

“In a world that is becoming increasingly data-centric and strategic, Clutch Group is the standard bearer. I look forward to harnessing my regulatory experience to help Clutch’s clients become more attuned to and navigate through today’s complex regulatory landscape,” he adds.

‘Extensive experience’

“We’re excited to have Charles join the team,” says Brandon Daniels, president of Clutch Group. “His extensive experience in regulatory oversight, strategy and data analytics, combined with his knowledge of financial products and market issues, will be enormously helpful as we continue to develop innovative risk and compliance solutions.”

London-based Hastie spent more than five years at the FCA, where he was a forensic investigator, and more recently he was a supervisor at Barclays.

Prior to joining the FCA in 2010, Hastie was an internal auditor at Man Group and American Express for five years and 10 months, respectively. Between 2001 and 2004, he was an auditor at the National Audit Office, and before that he worked as a derivatives broker for more than seven years.
