Richard Laiderman

Managing Director

Richard advises clients on managing risks and adding value in complex financial activities related to payments, treasury operations, credit cards, and foreign exchange.


Before joining Promontory, he was head of global treasury at Visa Inc., where he helped build its treasury department and foreign-exchange trading business and led back-office functions during the company’s initial public offering. As treasurer at Ameriprise Financial, he revamped the firm’s management of risks tied to variable-annuity benefits and achieved substantial cost savings and risk reduction prior to the market crash of 2008. He earlier served as treasurer of Providian Financial Corp., where he put in place strong liquidity management and oversaw the automation of deposit operations. During 13 years at Bank of America, he rose to become executive vice president of its corporate treasury and oversaw the firm’s funding and pension investments. At Bankers Trust, he helped build performance-measurement and risk models for the firm’s trading operations.
