TigerWit Limited, a U.K.-headquartered global financial technology company, has appointed Gareth Derbyshire as chief compliance officer.

Derbyshire, who has 20 years of regulatory and compliance experience across financial services—including banking, accounting, and retail derivatives—will be responsible for TigerWit’s global operating licenses and compliance oversight. His early career involved working for the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS). During the banking crisis of 2008, he moved into the banking sector as compliance manager at Norwich and Peterborough Building Society.

He soon moved into the retail trading arena, joining CMC Markets as head of compliance for the United Kingdom and Europe. In addition to working as compliance officer for other CFD brokers, including Plus500 and ETX Capital, Derbyshire was a senior manager of financial services risk and regulation at PwC.
