Sharon Bowles MEP named on top 10 list of ‘most influential’ regulators

Sharon Bowles, who represents the South-East of England in the European Parliament, has been named on a list of the ‘most influential’ people in European finance.

The 100-name long list, published this week by Financial News, is divided into ten ranked categories, with Sharon named 7th on the list of top regulators.

Sharon’s profile on the list was as follows:

“The re-elected as chairwoman of one of the European Parliament’s most influential committees at the start of this year, former patent lawyer Bowles has retained her prominence in Europe’s regulatory landscape. When the UK government vetoed an EU treaty last December, she was quick to condemn David Cameron’s decision, comparing the British Prime Minister to a “sulky child” and in January she pledged to be at the forefront of efforts to make the UK re-engage with Europe. She continues to shape the rules on complex issues ranging from bankers’ bonuses, capital requirements and market abuse to the review of the markets in financial instruments directive and the European market infrastructure regulation.”
