By: Elixirr

Peter Lightfoot, former Managing Director of CLS Bank and RBS Short Term Markets, has joined Elixirr as a Non-Executive Partner to help drive our risk and liquidity offering across our overall client base. His appointment makes a powerful statement about Elixirr’s growing standing across financial services, and further supports our market-wide reputation for advising and supporting banks as they consider enhancing their CLS membership status.

Peter brings over 35 years of experience to Elixirr across many aspects of banking, from retail through risk management, regulation, intraday liquidity and payment systems. He is an internationally recognised expert on intraday liquidity and financial markets, and has recently sat on major payment industry boards for CHAPS and the Bank of England Market Contingency Group.

About joining, Peter said:

“I’m delighted to be joining Elixirr as a Non-Executive Partner. They have quickly built up an impressive reputation across financial services institutions, and their innovation-led approach to consulting is what attracted me. Building businesses is what Elixirr do best, and I’m looking forward to building out the risk and liquidity business across our global client base.”

Elixirr Founder and Managing Partner, Stephen Newton said:

“It’s a pleasure to welcome Peter to our firm. He brings with him a wealth of expertise that will take our risk and liquidity capability to the next level, building on the strong foundations of our current team. Being able to attract someone like Peter to Elixirr as a non-executive is a testament to the exceptional talent we have in the firm and the quality work we deliver for our clients. I’m excited for what Peter will bring.”

We have been working across financial services since the early days (2011) and have built up a solid reputation for top quality. Having recently been listed in the FT1000 as the 3rd fastest growing management consulting firm in Europe and the fastest growing management consulting firm in the UK, we continue to expand on our capabilities so that we can deliver increasing value to our clients. Peter is an important part of that story.
