Roger Rudolph is an Executive at ENS in the Banking and Finance practice.

Roger specialises in structuring and leading transactions and projects that seek to achieve deal-specific tax, regulatory, financial or accounting objectives.

His experience includes extensive and prolonged involvement in the structuring and implementation of a wide range of liability-matching and hedging transactions as well as outsourcings by pension funds and insurers.

Roger has advised central banks, commercial banks, financial institutions and industry bodies on a range of governance, transactional and regulatory matters and advised local and foreign central banks on financial support to other banks and on establishing a legislative framework for the netting of financial transactions.

He has advised two South African public sector pension funds on the defence and settlement of a certified class action brought against the funds and the employer company and one of those funds in a substantial recovery of the proceeds of state capture.
