Why did you join the lang cat?

It seemed like a good idea at the time.

What is your role at the lang cat?

Head of publications.

If you could fix one thing in the financial services industry what would it be?

The lack of clarity. A lot of problems in the industry stem from advisers and providers not being clear on what the regulator expects of them and what they can and cannot do as a result. The FCA’s reluctance to take a prescriptive approach comes from a good place, but causes problems and has kept products and services that could have had a positive impact from ever seeing the light of day.

Who would be at your dream dinner party?

I don’t do dinner parties – even dream ones.

If you could only listen to one album forever more what would it be?

A long one.

Which cartoon character would you most like to swap places with for the day?

Wile E. Coyote: the ACME catalogue looks like fun.
