FCA director of wholesale banking and investment management William Amos has joined PwC as a partner, Money Marketing can reveal.

Amos, who left the regulator in June, has joined PwC this month as a partner in the firm’s financial services risk and regulation team focusing on wholesale conduct advisory services.

In August 2013, Amos was promoted from being a head of department in the regulator’s enforcement division as part of a restructure of the FCA’s supervision team.

The regulator will not replace Amos as the role will be absorbed by both the restructured supervision and authorisation teams.

Before joining the FSA, Amos was an economist at the Bank of England.

The move comes after former FCA director of supervision Clive Adamson has taken up three non-executive director roles since leaving the regulator in January.
