Christine Farnish is quitting her post as director of the FSA's consumer division to become chief executive of the National Association of Pension Funds. She takes up her new post from July. Farnish has proved a controversial figure among advisers. She has worked on areas such as stakeholder decision trees, league tables, the endowment issue and on the past performance task force. Initiatives from her division such as a CD Rom for investors providing generic advice were criticised by advisers who believed the FSA was trying to take over their role, though the regulator disputed this.
