Highclere Financial Services partner Alan Lakey has stepped down from the Apfa council.
In a statement, Apfa says Lakey has left the council “to pursue other opportunities”.
Apfa director general Chris Hannant says: “We’d like to thank Alan for all of his hard work and support over the last 18 months as we’ve campaigned for a better deal for advisers through a period of substantial change.
“Apfa continues to represent a broad church of small, medium and large financial advice firms, as we fight for a better deal on fees, securing a long stop and holding the regulator to account.
“We’ll be seeking a new member to represent small firms as part of our usual elected process.”
Lakey remains a member of Apfa.
