Billie-Jo Dixon

Practice Lead, Singapore

Billie-Jo has over twenty years’ experience in financial services and is a respected expert in regulatory compliance. She helps firms decide if they need to be licenced in Singapore and guides them through the MAS licensing process and all aspects of being a licenced business. For many financial institutions, Billie-Jo is a trusted advisor, having provided ongoing regulatory support for several years. She also leads our internal audits of fund management companies.

She also works closely with colleagues in Chicago and New York when it comes to providing US regulatory advice. She is highly experienced in supporting the Singapore arm of global businesses, aligning the local team with the compliance team at HQ to make sure that any MAS nuances are understood and properly incorporated in their compliance framework

Before joining Bovill Newgate, Billie-Jo worked in buy-side compliance teams at Merrill Lynch and ABN AMRO. She uses her experience in house, and from over a decade of consulting, to give clients practical, commercial advice.

A graduate of Durham University in the UK, Billie-Jo holds the UK’s Investment Management Certificate and Derivatives module of the SII Diploma, and the CMFAS Rules and Regulations for Fund Management module. She sits on AIMA’s Development Committee and is regularly invited to speak at industry events
