The Financial Services Authority has announced its Training Advisory Panel.
The panel is designed to provide advice to the FSA over training and competence issues and approval of industry examinations.
The FSAs head of industry training David Jackman will chair the committee. The panel will consist of 14 industry practitioners including IFA Network managing director Nick Ansell and Cavendish Financial Management managing director Julie Lord.
It will hold its first meeting in September.
FSA managing director Phillip Thorpe says: “Training and competence plays a key role in consumer protection. Training is and has to be an ongoing and developing process and firms owe it to their customers to offer the highest possible standards.”
