Chartered firm Informed Financial Planning has appointed a new leadership team in preparation for the senior management & certification regime (SM&CR).
The team consists of Informed Financial Planning head of compliance and operations Anjeanette Kemp, head of finance and paraplanning Sarah Williams and head of business development Jessica Crawford (pictured).
The Yorkshire financial planning firm's senior team collectively has more than 30 years' experience within the financial services sector and have combined their skills in different areas of management.
The SM&CR deadline will apply to the wider financial services sector from 9 December this year and will place new administrative, regulatory and conduct requirements on financial advisers.
Informed Financial Planning managing director Kevin Ferriby said: "This is a great step towards securing the future of the company. The implementation of our senior leadership team (SLT) ensures our financial planners can continue to focus on our client service, while the SLT can concentrate on driving the business forward and adhering to the Financial Conduct Authority's requirements."
