No, she has an American accent.

At 0:45 - FTSE Russell sits within the information services division

At 1:01 - So one of our flagship indices, as I've kind of mentioned

At 1:08 - global investment-grade bond markets

At 1:23 - the first two are relatively objective and the third kind of looks at whether or not a market

At 1:33 - is credit quality, so we require a single A-minus rating which Israel has met for quite some time

At 2:01 - we kind of went through a process

At 2:03 - through, you know, our governance framework

At 2:14 - to ensure things like settlement custody structures were there to ensure

At 2:18 - things like the bond market had sufficient liquidity, that FX, um, you know, was accessible

At 2:24 - It sounds as if she says "buy shekel to nominated securities", but I don't know what this would mean. It doesn't make sense to me.

Thank you, i've heard many American accents but that was very hard to understand

Did you notice her tendency to use rising intonation at the ends of statements where other speakers would use falling intonation? That habit gives the impression that the speaker isn't sure she's being understood. The rising intonation is constantly repeating "Do you understand what I'm saying?" "Do you know what I mean?" without saying the words.

Yes, she uses a lot of falling intonation as well. I'm not saying that all of her statements end with rising intonation. Just enough to be noticeable.
