GRANT THORNTON has made two partner appointments in its financial services advisory practice.
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.
Morrey is an expert on wholesale market issues within the securities and investment management sectors, and retail issues within the wealth management, advisory and lending sectors. He has experience helping clients deal with the complexities of current market regulation and advises firms on how to respond to a regulatory investigation.
Head of financial services regulatory at Grant Thornton Jon Sperrin said: “I am delighted to have both Alex and David join our team. Their combined experience strengthens our existing team and ensures we are continuing to deliver excellent services to our financial services sector clients.”
