Chief Executive of FCA resigns
Chancellor George Osborne said: “Britain needs a tough, strong financial conduct regulator. Martin Wheatley has done a brilliant job of launching the FCA in tough circumstances.” “Now that phase is complete, the government believes that different leadership is required to build on those foundations and take the organisation to the next stage of its development. ”
Tracy McDermott will take over on an interim basis until a replacement is found, Wheatley will continue to act as an adviser to the Board until January 31 2016 with a particular emphasis on the implementation of the Fair and Effective Markets Review, which he co-chaired.
