In 2009, Ross served as co-chair of the IOSCO Task Force on Unregulated Financial Entities.[7]

Ross began her career as an economist at the Bank of England prior to becoming a banking supervisor. From 1998 to 2000 ran the executive chairman’s office for Sir Howard Davies during the creation and early years of the FSA.
