Aifa has today announced that policy director Andrew Strange is leaving the trade body.
Strange (pictured), who has spent more than four years at Aifa, will leave in October.
Aifa says it has begun the process to appoint a replacement.
Director general Stephen Gay says: “After nearly five years at the Association, Andrew has decided to leave to pursue other business opportunities. On behalf of all our members, council and boards, I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his valuable contribution to our work and the development of the intermediary profession.
“His work on detailed regulatory issues from the RDR to the role of European regulation demonstrates the depth of his knowledge of the industry. He has played an extremely important part in delivering a better outcome for members and we wish him well in the future.”
Strange says: “I am proud of the work that Aifa, AMI and AFB do for their members. Policy complexity has expanded exponentially over the past five years and it has been an exciting time to be involved with the development of European and domestic regulation and government affairs.
“While I will miss participating in the breadth and intellectual rigour of the Aifa group of trade bodies, I look forward to continuing my career in financial services.”
