BDO's financial services practice appoints six new partners in last 12 months, from both lateral hires and internal talent

BDO has appointed Fiona Raistrick and Richard Weighell to its financial services team.

Raistrick joins from the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and brings 15 years regulatory, consulting and assurance experience to the table.

Weighell was previously at the firm’s risk and advisory practice where he garnered over three decades of expertise as an internal and external auditor. He also acted as a consultant for both corporate and not-for-profit organisations, including financial institutions such as investment bodies, banks and insurance providers. He is a specialist in assurance, governance, risk management and process improvement

Jeff Jones, BDO’s head of financial services, said: “With Fiona and Richard joining the team, our financial services practice has appointed six new partners in the last 12 months, from lateral hires but also from the talent we have across the firm.

“As a result the diversity of the team and breadth of their knowledge adds exceptional value to our clients. The ever-changing landscape in the financial service industry offers a wealth of opportunities for growth and we continue to grow as a team to take advantage of these prospects.”
