Citizens Advice Scotland has commented on the resignation of Martin Wheatley as head of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).
CAS Policy Manager Keith Dryburgh says,
“The FCA under Martin Wheatley has shown strong leadership in getting fairness and appropriate redress for consumers. From tackling rogue payday lenders to taking on those who unfairly sold PPI, the rights of the man and woman in the street have been prioritised by the regulator.
“Ever since the change from the old Financial Services Authority, consumers’ interests have been right at the heart of the financial watchdog, and we strongly believe that this should continue in the future whoever leads the organisation.”
