Adviser trade body Apfa has recruited a new senior policy adviser.

Alex Roberts joins the organisation from London-based law firm Lamb Chambers, where she specialised in personal injury claims, contractual disputes and professional negligence.

Roberts says: “I look forward to using my legal skills to ensure that the regulator and policymakers in the financial advice sector understand the needs and concerns of our members.”

Apfa director general Chris Hannant adds: “Alex’s legal background will help significantly in pushing for change in the regulatory framework. Her arrival will assist us in continuing to work towards a policy environment which supports financial advisers in providing the service their clients need and making sure financial advice is accessible and affordable.”
