Financial Services Consumer Panel appoints three members

The Financial Services Consumer Panel has appointed three new members.

The FSCP, which advises the Financial Conduct Authority on the interests and concerns of consumers, has recruited Liz Barclay, Caroline Barr and Doug Taylor.

It follows the departure of Dan Plant and Frances Harrison at the end of December, who came to the end of their three-year term on the panel. 

Barclay has been a broadcast journalist and producer for more than 20 years, specialising in personal finance and consumer affairs. She is on the board of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and the Equity Release Council standards board, and is chair of Camden Citizens Advice Bureau.

Barr has worked in the retail and corporate sectors of the financial services industry, and was part of the team at the Treasury which implemented the stakeholders products range recommended by the Sandler Review.

Taylor is leader of Enfield council, a member of the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority, a governor of the Pensions Policy Institute and a member of the Nest members panel. He was previously chief advocate of financial services at consumer organisation Which?.

The appointments take effect from 1 January and will be for a three-year term.

FSCP chair Sue Lewis says: “I am delighted to welcome Liz, Caroline and Doug to the panel. They each bring with them a wealth of knowledge and experience of the financial services industry and a passion for consumer advocacy.
“I am very grateful to the departing members, Frances Harrison and Dan Plant, for their invaluable contribution to the success of the panel. As they come to the end of their three-year terms, they leave with our thanks and best wishes for the future.”
