The former chief executive of the London Stock Exchange, will chair the Lead Expert Group for the Government Office for Science’s latest Foresight project, ‘The Future of Computer Trading in Financial Markets’.

Other members of the Lead Expert Group include Andy Haldane, executive director of financial stability at the Bank of England, Professor Charles Goodhart from the London School of Economics and Professor Philip Bond from the University of Oxford and Bristol.
