It follows Cole's promotion to the FSA's board in recognition of her role in increasing the regulator's conviction rate.

HSBC attacked over Geoghegan severance deal
HSBC is bracing itself for a political backlash today after details of departing Michael Geoghegan's severance package emerged over the weekend, showing the bank's chief executive could walk away with more than £20m when he leaves the bank next year.
The Government has urged the banks to show restraint on pay awards as the economic recovery struggles to gain traction and the public sector prepares for thousands of job losses following next month's spending review, writes the Independent.
Last Friday, the bank confirmed Mr Geoghegan would leave next March after it broke with 30 years of tradition and passed him over for the chairmanship.
Cameron hints at tax cuts for middle-class once economy is back on track

In the interview, Cameron tried to offset fears about the upcoming spending review.
Victory for 'Red Ed' Milliband but business stays wary
Just days after the Business Secretary called them "spivs and gamblers", many City workers are feeling relieved the Coalition is in power, rather than Labour, under Ed Miliband.
Of the Mili-brothers, many in the City appear to have been hoping for David, the more centre-ground Blairite politician, to be elected, writes the Telegraph.
The younger Miliband insisted over the weekend that the party will not "lurch to the left" under his leadership, but the reaction of business groups showed they need more convincing.
There was a fear that "Red Ed" will push for more Government intervention in business, deliver more power to the unions, back the break-up of banks, and target high-earners.
