University challenge for FSA&#39s head of training

FSA head of industry training and business ethics adviser David Jackman has been appointed visiting professor at London Guildhall University&#39s centre for financial regulation studies.

Jackman, the architect of the training and competence regime that came in last November, will give lectures and advise on the content of financial services training courses. He will also be involved in research initiatives.

Jackman says: “Values and ethics are at the core of culture and play a very important role in determining the reputation and long-term success of businesses.”
