ICFR Appoints Currie as Chairman

The International Centre for Financial Regulation (ICFR) has appointed David Currie the first chairman of the ICFR. Throughout his career, Currie has focused upon regulatory issues; he chaired the initial working group responsible for preparing the ICFR’s prospectus and terms of reference two years ago. As chairman, Currie will help direct the strategy for the ICFR in addition to establishing relations with potential stakeholders across the globe and advising on research and training.

Currie has served the inaugural chairman of the communications regulator, Ofcom, since July 2002 and steps down this month. A well-known figure in international economic policy, he has published extensively in the field of government regulation of industry and of macroeconomic policy. He was Dean of Cass Business School (2001-2007), and Professor of Economics (1988-2000) and Deputy Dean (1992-95, 1999-2000) at London Business School and director of its Centre for Economic Forecasting (1988-95) and Regulation Initiative (1995-2000).

Currie has previously served as chairman of Independent Audit, on the board of Abbey National and of Ofgem (the UK energy regulator), as well as on a variety of UK government advisory bodies including the Treasury’s panel of independent forecasters (the ‘Wise Men’). He is chairman of Semperian PPP Investment Partners and a board member of the Dubai Financial Services Authority, the Royal Mail, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and the newly launched Institute for Government. He also chairs the major project on innovation at the National Endowment for Science, Technology and the Arts (NESTA).
