In 1980 she was appointed by the President as a Commissioner of the US Securities and Exchange Commission. Thereafter she was appointed as the first woman executive director of Samuel Montagu and held many positions in the financial services industry including Chair of the UK/US Committee on Corporate Governance and Senior Advisor to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.  She was also a Public Member of the International Ethics Standards Board for Accountants and Deputy Chairman of the UK Financial Reporting Council (the UK’s regulator of corporate governance), among others.

In 2010 she was appointed as Chairman of the UK Pension Protection Fund after completing two terms as Chairman of the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority and was appointed Chairman Emeritus in recognition of her expertise.  In addition, she is also Chairman of The Energy Institute of University College London.

Lady Judge is a non-executive director of Statoil ASA (Norway), NV Bekaert SA (Belgium) and Magna International Inc (Canada).  Previously she was Deputy Chairman of Friends Provident, one of the UK’s largest insurance companies.

In November 2010 Lady Judge was appointed by the Prime Minister as a Business Ambassador for the UK.

She is also Chairman of the International Advisory Board of SOAS and its London Middle East Institute.  In addition she was the first woman member of the Board of Overseers of the Wharton School of Finance and is currently a member of its Executive Board for Europe, Middle East and Africa.
