The Financial Services Consumer Panel has appointed three new members.
The FSCP, which advises the FCA on the interests and concerns of consumers, has recruited Liz Barclay, Caroline Barr and Doug Taylor.
It follows the departure of panel members Dan Plant and Frances Harrison at the end of December after their three-year terms ended.
Barclay is a broadcast journalist and producer, specialising in personal finance. She is on the board of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and the Equity Release Council standards board.
Barr has worked in the financial services industry and also for the Treasury.
Taylor is leader of Enfield Council, a member of the European Insurance and Occupational Pensions Authority and the Nest members panel and a governor of the Pensions Policy Institute. He was previously chief advocate of financial services at consumer organisation Which?
The roles take effect from 1 January and will be for a three-year term. FSCP chair Sue Lewis says: “Liz, Caroline and Doug 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 Frances and Dan for their invaluable contribution to the success of the panel.”
