He joined the FCA in 2014 and has been worked in variety of policy and strategy roles including leading the team developing the FCA’s Mission. Alex started working life as an economist before moving to a policy focus at the Association of British Insurers where he led their work on the Retail Distribution Review. A topic that once again Alex is responsible for, this time in the form of the FCA’s recently announced review.
