AMI policy chief Revell quits trade body to take role at FCA

Association of Mortgage Intermediaries head of policy Alex Revell is leaving to join the FCA as a senior associate within the regulator’s sector support team.

Revell, who is expected to leave the trade body in November, has worked on policy analysis at AMI for the past five years.

The trade body says it is currently recruiting for a senior policy adviser to replace Revell.

AMI chief executive Robert Sinclair says: “This is the third AMI policy person who has left to join the regulator.  I am delighted for Alex who has grown during his time with AMI and know that he will continue to champion the right thing for consumers as he develops his career.  Alex will be missed by the whole AMI family, but the knowledge he takes to the FCA will benefit the wider industry.

“This also gives us the opportunity to recruit a new senior policy analyst to ensure that the intermediary broker market is professionally represented as we absorb the challenges of the new consumer credit regime and the European mortgage directive.

“AMI is interested in hearing from individuals who have a background in compliance, or mortgages, or public policy, who are looking to broaden their knowledge and hone their communication skills.”

The trade body split from the Association of Independent Financial Advisers, now the Association of Professional Financial Advisers, in February 2012.
