She brings 25 years of consulting experience to her work at the intersection of risk, corporate and institutional banking, and technology. With a collaborative approach to leadership and significant technical expertise, Dani helps organizations elevate and attain significant aspirations.

Her experience spans banks, broker dealers, exchanges, and investment funds, with a focus on business strategy, risk, capital, and liquidity, from operating-model assessment and development to analytics, regulatory response, and compliance. She has worked extensively in the traded-product area, across counterparty credit risk and market risk, and is considered an industry expert on how banks manage risk to institutional counterparts.

Dani has also worked broadly on capital and liquidity stress testing, developing the industry approach to trading book wind-down analytics for resolution planning. A deeply knowledgeable technologist, she frequently works on transformation programs across commercial banking and capital markets.
