Aifa picks Strange to take on new role of policy director

The Association of Independent Financial Advisers has appointed Andrew Strange to the new position of policy director.

Strange has been the senior policy analyst at Aifa since April 2007 and will take up the new role next week.

The position was created following the resignation last month of deputy director general Fay Goddard who is joining the Chartered Insurance Institute.

Strange will lead the policy team in formulating policy on legislative, regulatory and technical issues as well as responses to Government and regulatory consultations.

He will also have overall responsibility for policy development at the Association of Mortgage Intermediaries and the Association of Finance Brokers.

Before joining Aifa, Strange worked as an IFA for London firm Felix Financial and previously ran his own financial services company serving the mortgage and protection markets.

Aifa director general Chris Cummings says: “Following a rigorous process, we are delighted to appoint such a strong candidate. Andrew, who is a qualified IFA, brings a wealth of policy and hands-on sectoral experience to this role.”

 John Charcol senior technical manager Ray Boulger says Strange has proved his worth during the last 12 months.

He says: “There were some very high quality applicants for this role and it is a huge compliment for Andrew to be chosen for the job.”
