Keogh joins FSPP Practitioner Panel

The Financial Services Authority has appointed Colin Keogh, group chief executive of Close Brothers Group – owner of Mortgage Intelligence – to the Financial Services Practitioner Panel.

The FSPP is a statutory body that represents the interests of practitioners within the regulatory framework, principally by ensuring that the FSA takes account of the views and concerns of regulated firms in the development of its policy and in its operations generally.

Keogh joins the panel to provide input from the wholesale and investment banking sector. He takes the place of David Verey, who is standing down.

Jonathan Bloomer, chairman of the FSPP, says: “Keogh’s extensive experience covers the whole banking sector and will boost the panel’s ability to provide an authoritative channel for communication at a senior level between the FSA and the financial services industry it regulates.”
