London Stock Exchange chief executive officer Nikhil Rathi will meanwhile becomes chair of the FCA Markets Practitioner Panel from 1 July 2019. He has been a member of that panel since 2015 and succeeds John Trundle, chief executive officer of Euroclear UK & Ireland. Nikhil is also a member of the FCA Practitioner Panel.
"Both Tulsi and Nikhil have served on the panels for a number of years and are well placed to lead the panels in supporting the FCA to be a targeted and effective regulator," said Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) chair Charles Randell.
'Robust but constructive'
"The work of the panels has never been more important, given the extent of the changes in our world, including Brexit. I look forward to the robust but constructive challenge they will provide, and to working with them both in their new roles.
"I would also like to thank Anne and John for their significant contribution to the work of the panels as both members and chairs."
The FCA Practitioner Panels are independent statutory bodies that represent the financial services industry within the UK's regulatory framework. Panel members are recruited to represent both their own sector and the industry as a whole, rather than individual firms.
