The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) has appointed three new members to its Regulatory Decisions Committee (RDC), including a former JP Morgan investment banker and Barclay's director.
The FCA hired Iraj Amiri, a former senior partner at Deloitte who was previously seconded to Schroders as global head of internal audit; Richard Berliand, who is a retired JP Morgan investment banker; and John Callender, a former commercial director at Barclays Bank UK Banking.
Berliand also sits on the supervisory boards of Deutsche Börse and Eurex Frankfurt as a non-executive director (NED) and is a member of the CFTC Global Markets Advisory Committee, while Callender is a non-executive chair of ANZ Bank Europe among other NED roles.
The RDC, which is set up by the FCA, has members drawn from across a spectrum of business, consumer and industry experience.
It is responsible for taking decisions on whether to grant contested applicants entries into the regulated community and for issuing warning and decision notices for certain enforcement cases on behalf of the FCA.
In addition to the new members, the FCA board appointed Andrew Long as chairman of the RDC until September 2014.
Long is currently acting chairman and will be supported by Peter Hinchliffe, who joined the RDC in February last year and was recently appointed as a deputy chairman.
