Crime chief Robinson leaves FSA after 12 years

FSA director of financial crime Philip Robinson is leaving the regulator in December after 12 years.

Robinson’s role has disappeared as part of the FSA’s decision to combine its enforcement and crime divisions.

As director of financial crime, he was responsible for ensuring that issues which pose risks to the FSA’s financial crime objective are quickly identified and resolved and that the FSA has the right depth and breadth of financial crime expertise, as well as coherent requirements and policies on financial crime issues.

Since 1997, Robinson has had a number of director roles at the FSA, initially in communications, then the pension misselling review and for banking and building society supervision.

Before joining the FSA, he worked in the securities and derivatives industry.

He is a fellow of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants.
