Alex Ellerton boasts more than 15 years’ experience providing regulatory advisory services to financial services firms, with a particular focus on the retail market.
He has worked with a cross-section of firms in meeting current and emerging regulatory requirements and has particular focus on investigation and remediation work. Ellerton also regularly carries out ‘skilled person’ work at the request of the regulator, as does fellow appointee David Morrey.
