The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (CIMA) has appointed Judith Watler to its board of directors.
The appointment as a director of the board by the Cabinet of the Cayman Islands Government took effect on July 29, 2014. She will also serve on the policy, strategy and legislative sub-committee of the board.
Watler is Intertrust’s compliance director for the Americas, responsible for ensuring compliance with the anti-money laundering (AML) and regulatory requirements, as well as compliance with the Group's internal policies and procedures for all jurisdictions in which Intertrust has offices within the Americas region.
Watler has been with Intertrust since February 2005, through their predecessor Walkers Management Services (WMS). She joined the compliance department of WMS in 2005, and was promoted to director of compliance for all offices, globally, in 2009.
Prior to joining WMS, Watler worked at CIMA for approximately fourteen years. Her most recent position at the authority was senior analyst in the investments and securities division, where she was responsible for the supervision and regulatory compliance of a portfolio of regulated entities and licence holders.
“Watler has a deep understanding of compliance, from both the industry and the regulatory perspectives,” said Financial Services Minister Wayne Panton. “As a CIMA board member, her balanced viewpoint will contribute greatly to the Authority’s policy development and general administration.”
