ICAEW brings in Bloomer and Tiner for new faculty

The ICAEW has
recruited several financial heavyweights to help launch its financial services

Ex-Prudential chief executive Jonathan Bloomer will chair the faculty’s
advisory group, while FSA chief executive
John Tiner and MP John
McFall will also be members of the group.

The faculty is targeted at providing support for its own professionals, of
which 25,000 work in the sector, and also non-members.

It will look at the implementation of Markets in Financial
Instruments Directive
(MiFID) in the sector and the role of finance
professionals in interpreting its principles-based regulation.

Iain Coke, head of the new faculty, is hoping to get several thousand members
to join the faculty in its inaugural year.
