ISDA has announced the appointment of Ankit Jain as Head of Solutions Adoption, a new role that will spearhead ISDA’s drive to encourage broad adoption of its suite of mutualized industry solutions.

Mr. Jain joins ISDA from SoftServe, a software development and digital services company, where he was Head of Banking and Trading Domain Solutions and Transformation, responsible for managing front-office, trading, derivatives and technology transformation across banking and broader financial services clients. Before that, he led the change and oversight of large strategic transformation initiatives at Deutsche Bank from 2015 to 2022, having previously held various change leadership positions across multiple financial services companies. He started his career at Goldman Sachs in 1997.

“We’re very pleased to welcome Ankit to ISDA. His appointment is part of a broader strategy to ensure our various products and services are fully aligned and we maximize the potential for broad adoption. Ultimately, the greater the take-up of our mutualized solutions across the industry, the better the efficiencies and cost reductions for everyone, so there will be a big focus on raising awareness, explaining the benefits and encouraging implementation,” said Scott O’Malia, Chief Executive of ISDA.

“I am delighted to join ISDA as the Head of Solutions Adoption. ISDA’s story is woven into the fabric of the global finance and derivatives industries. Since 1985, ISDA has worked to make the global derivatives markets safer and more efficient to facilitate effective risk management for all users of derivatives. With the development of a suite of digital products and solutions, ISDA is once again proving to be the go-to organization for shaping the future of the derivatives industry. I am excited to lead ISDA’s products and solutions implementation drive to broaden adoption across the industry,” said Mr. Jain.
