Tilney Bestinvest appoints ex-FSA chief to board


Tilney Bestinvest has appointed former FSA chief executive John Tiner and Betfair chief executive Breon Corcoran as non-executive directors.

Tiner was previously chief executive of the Resolution Group, chairman of the UK Financial Capability Steering Group and is currently a non-executive director of the Credit Suisse Group and on the advisory board of Corsair Capital. He was awarded a CBE in 2007.
