Readers get a chance to grill Severn on 121

The head of the FSA&#39s polarisation review David Severn has agreed to answer questions emailed by Money Marketing readers on consultation paper 121.

Given the length of the regulator&#39s consultation paper, many IFAs may not have time to study the report in detail.

A selection of questions and replies will be published in MM in the near future.

Any readers wanting to put forward a question should email MM&#39s regulation and politics reporter Corey Boles at coreyb@centaur.co.uk by February 1.
