L&G Puts The Boot In

L&G Puts The Boot In

It is reported that David Prosser, CEO of Legal & General (L&G), has demanded changes to the Financial Services Authority's (FSA) disciplinary procedures.

This is in the wake of the partly successful appeal by L&G, against the FSA fine of £1.1M for endowment policy mis-selling by L&G.

Prosser asked for greater independence in the FSA's regulatory decisions committee (RDC), that is the body that considers recommendations made by the regulator's enforcement staff.

Currently the chair of the RDC is an FSA employee.

It is reported that L&G may ask the Financial Services and Markets Tribunal to enforce these changes.
