Former Association of British Insurers director of conduct regulation Maggie Craig is set to join the FCA, Money Marketing can reveal.
Craig, who left the insurance industry trade body in October last year, will join the regulator as an adviser on 27 January.
She will advise FCA staff on a range of policy issues, focusing on life, pensions and general insurance.
FCA head of savings, investments and distribution David Geale says: “I am delighted to be welcoming Maggie to the FCA.
“Her knowledge and experience of financial services and pensions policy issues is extensive and her input will be invaluable in helping us devise policy that is well-rounded and meaningful.”
Craig and fellow directors Stephen Gay and Nick Starling left the ABI last year as part of a radical restructure of the organisation.
Prior to joining the trade body Craig was head of public affairs at Standard Life.
