February 6, 2014 Leave a comment
Blythe Masters is the head of Global Commodities at JPMorgan Chase. She was previously the Chief Financial Officer of JPMorgan Chase’s Investment Bank and has served as the Head of Global Credit Portfolio and Credit Policy and Strategy.
Masters was born in Oxford, and was raised in south-east England. She graduated from Trinity College, Cambridge with a B.A. in economics, and joined J.P. Morn after several internships there in college.
Over the past five years, Masters built the biggest physical commodity trading operation on Wall Street at JPMorgan.
Reuters just announced that Masters will be joining the committee advising the U.S. derivatives regulator. The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), which is a group of market participants that meet regularly to discuss a wide range of issues, voted on their new global Markets Advisory Committee.
This advisory committee is a group of senior officials at large investment banks, asset managers, firms running trading platforms and industry bodies, and is sponsored by Mark Wetjen, the CFTC’s acting chairman.
The committee will meet next week to discuss the CFTC’s controversial cross-border rules. This explains how foreign companies should adhere with U.S. rules when they are doing business from or dealing with U.S. clients.
