Background[edit]

Before joining the FOA, Puleston Jones, an attorney, was a director in the investment banking unit of Barclays, where he headed European legal coverage for futures and OTC clearing.[5] Earlier in his career, he covered Barclays’ structured credit, cash CDO and fixed income rates businesses. [6]
