John Griffith-Jones, chairman of the FCA, commented: “The creation of a new financial regulator is a once in a generation event and the regulatory objectives set out for the FCA by Parliament demand a wide skill set. Therefore, I am especially pleased with the range and depth of experience of our new Board, as we embark on the FCA journey.”
