IFAA U-turn over trade body talks

The IFA Association&#39s chairman and deputy chairman are to sit on a revamped steer ing committee charged with setting up a new trade body for IFAs.


The change of heart by Bernard Jones and Keith Brassington comes only weeks after Jones dismissed plans for a new body, spearheaded by the Large Networks Association and the Large Intermediaries Group, in the IFAA&#39s written submission to the IFA Representation Steering Group.


Their decision to join the steering group has fuelled speculation the new body will be built around the IFAA.
