Blog editor promoted to Partnership
I am pleased to announce that Robbie Constance has been promoted to Partner, adding further depth and breadth to our Regulatory Group.
Robbie handles a broad range of contentious and non-contentious financial services regulatory work but focuses on the insurance and wealth / asset management sectors. He advises on varied contentious matters, from significant mis-selling exposures to large or systemic FOS complaints. He has worked on FSA enforcement cases relating to client money systems breaches and capital adequacy, as well as on-going LIBOR setting investigations. Robbie's non-contentious work has recently focused on preparing a number of investment firms for RDR implementation.
The FCA's focus on 'wholesale conduct' and avowed intent to tackle risks of consumer detriment higher up the wealth and asset management distribution chain will no doubt keep Robbie busy assisting clients with his experience of FSA retail regulation. The FCA's RDR implementation and on-going wealth management reviews (exemplified by yesterday's fine against JPMIB), and the imminent UCIS retail sales ban, will no doubt provide ample opportunity for blogging – work permitting!
