Consultancy firm Delta Capita has appointed a new head of sales for its post-trade managed services division, adding an industry veteran with experience at some of the market’s largest custodians.

Industry veteran Nicholas Bone will take on the role, joining from Brown Brothers Harriman where he served as senior vice president of business development for financial institutions.

In this new role, Bone will be responsible for driving the growth of Delta Capita’s global post-trade managed services offering, with a key focus on client engagement and development.

Bone has spent the majority of his career in the post-trade space, working at organisations including the Bank of England, Deutsche Bank, BNY Mellon and Standard Chartered Bank.

He boasts over two decades of experience in global banking, spanning operations, business development, product development, FinTech, network management, sales and global relationship management.

Throughout his career, Bone has sat on several industry committees including the ISSA working group on DLT and as Standard Chartered’s representative on SWIFT’s Innotribe DLT Challenge.

“We are delighted that Nicholas has joined us in this new role to support the acceleration of our managed services and post-trade strategy. His combined experience across the post-trade, asset servicing and FinTech industries, complemented with our innovative and entrepreneurial culture will enable us to continue Reinventing the Financial Services Value Chain,” said Gary Bullock, head of post-trade at Delta Capita.

As part of the next phase of its growth strategy, Delta Capita is enhancing its client offering in post-trade managed services, following its recent success in structured retail products and client lifecycle management.

Delta Capita’s post-trade team delivers a full range of validation, settlement and other lifecycle services across all asset classes, helping clients navigate a range of solutions and target models.

“The opportunity to mutualise critical, but non-differentiating post-trade operational processes has never been greater. By providing common operational services for the industry, clients will significantly reduce their cost bases, allowing them to focus on value-added activities at a higher margin. I am excited to join Delta Capita to further develop this capability and look forward to delivering on the opportunity that lies ahead,” said Bone.
